Calling on God
Today's reading: Psalm 83:1-18
The Israelites are in a dangerous situation, one they don't have the physical resources or power to adequately defend themselves from. So they do all that they are able to do—they petition God to act on their behalf and on behalf of His mighty name.
What a good reminder that regardless of our circumstances (even when they seem enormous to us), we are not powerless when we are in relationship with God! As a follower of Christ, we have direct access to the God of the universe. We can bring our petitions before Him with confidence knowing that He is in control of all things.
How does talking with God about circumstances that you can't control help your thinking, emotions, and attitude? Do your prayers include asking God to contend with sinful situations in the world around you? Tami
