The Lord Listens

The Lord listens to poor, helpless people. He does not turn away from those who are in prison.

Psalms 69:33 ERV

Read Psalm 69

Psalm 69 is an individual lament about a faithful Israelite who is suffering for the wrong things he has done. The assailants took advantage of his pain and even made it worse. In his position as representative for the people of God, David wrote this psalm to demonstrate the perfect answer to such trials. 

Nowadays, we have a lot of avenues to voice out our feelings. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms have been the go-to access. David says when sad and hurting, our response is to look to God and ask Him “God, lift me up and save me! I will praise God’s name in song. I will honor him by giving him thanks (v. 29-30).” Why? Because the following verses say, “The Lord will be happier with this than with the offering of an ox or a full-grown bull as a sacrifice.” We can still worship God in whatever circumstance because the Lord listens to poor, helpless people. His love for us remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. There are times when we feel like God is not doing anything, but just trust the process because God is sovereign. He does he does not turn away from those who are in a prison of their sins and past mistakes. 

Let us sing praises and rejoice because our God is a loving God!
