A Glory Seed Devotional
Home Sweet PSALMS…
One of the hardest things for us humans to believe is that God doesn’t tell time! He doesn’t have an alarm to wake him up at 6:00 AM. He doesn’t get dressed, go down for breakfast, read the Celestial Daily News, and then head to the office to dispense the blessings of the day.
In some mysteriously and un-understandable way every second of our life he’s aware of our needs and with great patience, wisdom, and diligence he waits for just the right minute to give us the blessings we need.
As King David lived out his life, he always kept God close to his heart even though his life at times did not reflect it. When he made mistakes, when enemies were closing in, when hope was disappearing God would rise up at just the right time and give him victory through forgiveness, through protection, through peace. As you read following Psalm look for the one thing that told David God had also drawn him close to His Heart.
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices, and in your salvation how greatly he exults! You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. For you meet him with rich blessings; you set a crown of fine gold upon his head. He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever. His glory is great through your salvation; splendor and majesty you bestow on him. For you make him most blessed forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence. For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved. (Psalms 21:1-7 ESV)
Did you catch it? Do you know what kept the king going? “For the kings trusts in the Lord,” David knew through experience that God would not fail him. David’s level of trust came at a high price because it came from his mistakes and from the adversities he experienced.
What’s good enough for the king is good enough for you!
God’s not a clock-watcher he’s a you watcher! Trust him to do what is right for you and remember failure is not in the Celestial Dictionary.
Grace and PEACE!
"Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" (Psalms 46:10 ESV)
