“Save me, for I am Yours; I have sought out Your precepts.” -Psalm 119:94
This cry for deliverance comes from one assured of his standing before God. The psalmist belongs to God. Knowing that the Lord will not forsake His own, the psalmist uses his adopted status as part of his plea for help. All believers have this privilege. We can confidently come to the Throne of Grace in our time of need, assured the Lord has heard us. This is our soul calm, the truth we rest in even when external circumstances swirl in chaotic warfare. God is with us, our refuge and strength, an ever present help in times of trouble. He is never late to a rescue mission, as His divine timetable and ways are always perfect.
We wait with confident hope for God to fulfill all His promises, trusting in His goodness. If God’s children are considered the apple of His eye, then rest assured He has not forgotten you. In the “already and not yet” timeframe, let us persevere in keeping God’s holy precepts. His work on Earth is still not done. Our Father calls us to faithfully serve alongside Him to the very end.
Grace upon grace,
