Eyes and Ears
Today's reading: Psalm 34:1-22
Throughout Psalm 34 David proclaims God's goodness. I like how he repeatedly delivers the message that God is fully aware of our circumstances, and is there to sustain and help us in and through our life struggles and difficulties. The following verses convey this message well.
"The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry... When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit" (vs. 15, 17-18).
How have you experienced God seeing your struggles, hearing your requests and responding, either by changing your situation or sustaining and lifting your crushed spirit? What encouragement did you draw from this song of praise today? Tami
