Daily Bread: Thoughts & Prayers from the Psalms
~ Psalm 17 ~
Loved greatly and wondrously.
The apple of God’s own eye.
Hidden in God.
Psalm 17 clearly shows that David KNEW how loved by God
Perhaps this is why he could say so confidently, “I call on you, O God, for You will answer me” !
Have you ever pleaded with God to hear your prayers, but wondered whether He really would?
Have you wondered whether He was concerned with all the little things that your heart was burdened with?
You can be sure that God LOVES YOU, just like He loved David! You too are greatly and wondrously loved! You are the apple of His eye, cherished blessed and hidden in Him! And as His child, you can cry out the same words of this Psalm (and your own words too!) with CONFIDENCE.
“Rise up, O LORD!”
“I call on You…for You will answer me”!
GIVE EAR !
We call on YOU
us all the wonder
GREAT LOVE !
by your right hand.
us close as the apple of your eye.
us in the shadow of your wings.
and rescue us from the wicked.
the hunger of all those who you cherish
our sons have plenty
and they can store up wealth
for their children.
will see YOUR FACE !
