The Journey with Ron Moore

Help Me! | Psalm 109:26-31

Today’s Passage: Psalm 109:26-31
Key Verses: Psalm 109:26-27

Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love. Let them know that it is your hand, that you, LORD, have done it.

Peter, the outspoken disciple, once saw Jesus walking on the water and wanted to do the same thing. So at Jesus’ invitation he got out of the boat and started toward Jesus. Then he realized what he was doing. He was struck with fear and began to sink. He cried out to Jesus, “Lord, save me.” Jesus did.

Sometimes our prayers are filled with the poetry of the psalms. We thank God for his sovereign control and omnipotent hand in our lives. We thank him for the beauty of creation and for his blessings on our lives. Sometimes our prayer is like Peter’s and the psalmist. Due to fear, fatigue, anxiety, illness, and/or confusion all we can pray is: “Help me, Lord my God, save me according to your unfailing love.”

If that’s where you are today, I can promise you that God hears your cry for help. He knows exactly where you are and how you are feeling. He knows what is weighing down your soul and cluttering your mind. He knows that the storms of life can deliver doubt to the strongest heart. Just cry out, “Help me, Lord my God, save me….” He will.

Lord Jesus, I pray for the person who is exhausted. Just like you reached out and pulled Peter back into the boat, reach out and deliver the weary soul. Bring them to the safety of your presence. In your name I pray. Amen.
