Hurry Up God:
Make haste, O God, to deliver me!
Make haste to help me, O Lord! Let them be ashamed and confounded
Who seek my life;
Let them be turned back and confused
Who desire my hurt.
Let them be turned back because of their shame,
Who say, “Aha, aha!”
Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified!”
But I am poor and needy;
Make haste to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
O Lord, do not delay. Psalm 70 NKJV
Being in the middle of trials and difficulties can lead us down an unexpected path we don’t want to go. Like David (the author of Psalm 70) we want them done and over with as soon as possible. Our prayer and cry to God is “hurry up, get me out of this”. But maybe being in the middle of it all is where God wants us. In between David’s “make haste” pleas to God, notice he slows down, takes a breath by faith and considers the character of God. He then rejoices and magnifies the Name of God knowing there is One who is bigger than his problems. Next time you are in the middle of it, maybe it is time to take a deep breath and magnify our Lord.
“The heart of true faith is rooted in and guided by truth; truth established by God through the essence of His nature and His Word. Without His truth as revealed in the Bible, man can only stumble in his effort to know Him and be redeemed by Him.” M.P. Bramble
