Help is Closer Than We Think

Psalm 70 1-5 is an awesome example of one crying out for “Help” it is David, the man after God’s own heart crying…”Please, God, rescue me! Come quickly, Lord, and help me. May those who try to kill me be humiliated and put to shame May those who take delight in my trouble be turned back in disgrace. Let them be horrified by their shame, for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now! But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “God is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my savior; O Lord, do not delay.”

David wanted God to come quickly to deliver him from his troubles so he would not faint or sink under pressure. David said…Make haste, make no tarrying. This meant he did not want to wait any longer for relief to arrive. Does it seem as if God sometimes takes too long for us? In anticipation of His arrival we frantically go ahead of his counsel. This is so not the right move. We must not attempt to gain relief from our situation by methods that are not in alignment with God’s will. Instead, we meet Him in humble prayer and make our request known.
