God My Friend? ?

Are you seeking God’s help today? Our psalmist in today’s scripture is in trouble and danger. Enemies on every side. In effect, he cries out, “God help!” But this is more than a cry for help; it is also a plea for forgiveness. Repeatedly, the psalmist asks God to forget, forgive, and be gracious. He also seeks guidance and the wise counsel of a friend and confidant. He asks God for direction and teaching to see the path he should take. 

The psalmist concludes his prayer with a commitment to follow through on his request—knowing God’s ways and understanding who God wants him to be, and following through on God’s guidance and walking the way God directs him to walk, will be his path to success. 

Today and each new day, choices need to be made, decisions acted on, and life lived. The scripture invites us to live under the all-knowing tutoring of God, to humbly submit to His holy wisdom, which will help us make faithful decisions. We must rely on the steadfast one who hears our cries and whose friendship will guide us to the right choices throughout our lives. 

The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. — Psalm 25:14 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for always responding to my requests for help. What a friend I have in you, my God! Father, help me to be faithful in return, loving you with all my heart, soul, and mind, being obedient to your will and request in Christ’s name. Amen.
