Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Scripture

Psalm 27


Observation

I saw a progession in this Psalm
Verses 1-3 is about the fear that we all feel. Even though we have faith in God and know we are protected it is difficult to not be afraid.

Verses 4-6 speaks about God's presense. We are with Him and He is with us, protecting us. For this we praise Him.

Verses 7-12 is David's prayer. In verse 8 "My heart has heard you say, "Come and talk with me." And my heart responds, "Lord, I am coming." . How often do we hear God asking for us to come talk with Him and we don't respond!

Verses 13-14 We have confidence as we wait patiently.


Application

It amazes me how God speaks to us in many ways. As I read through this Psalm I immediately saw the progression from fear to God's Presence to Prayer and finally to Confidence. But when I got to verse 8 and read it for probably the 3rd or 4th time today it all of a sudden jumped off the page.

We need to open our hearts and our minds to be able to hear God calling us. He wants us to talk to Him and to invite Him into our daily lives, to be a part of everything we do.

The application of this Psalm is simply to talk to God more.


Prayer

Lord, thank you for so many blessings and for the wonderful ways you speak to me. I pray today that all of us can be more aware of just how much we need you in our lives and how often you try to reach us. Help us to hear you more clearly and respond to you with praise.
