One of the great promises we can count upon with God is that he truly knows our plights. When we call out to him he listens to our cries.  David, the great King, experienced many difficult times in his life. Fighting giants, running from Saul, uniting a divided kingdom, repenting from major sins, crumbling family, internal rebellion…you get the idea. The thing that held David and his kingdom together was that David always knew to call out to God.
 
In David’s life, the reason for the call was not nearly as significant as the placement of the call.  In any and every circumstance David always returned to God. It was his only choice. As a result, God heard his pleas and met his needs. David became the man after God’s own heart–not because he was perfect, far from it, it was because he loved, knew and trusted God.
 
In our lives, we can have the same experience.  We can face anything, knowing that God is our go to. In good times and difficult ones–we seek him first and trust him completely.  While the journey can become difficult at times, we build a legacy of love and trust that will live far past our own life.  God is our God in both good and difficult times–He needs to be the one we call in every case!
 
God Bless You
 
Please, God, rescue me!
    Come quickly, Lord, and help me.
May those who try to kill me
    be humiliated and put to shame.
May those who take delight in my trouble
    be turned back in disgrace.
Let them be horrified by their shame,
    for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!”
But may all who search for you
    be filled with joy and gladness in you.
May those who love your salvation
    repeatedly shout, “God is great!”
But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    please hurry to my aid, O God.
You are my helper and my savior;
    Lord, do not delay.
