chronological day 130 :)

Today we’re reading Psalm 35, 36, 37 and 38.

130

David is honest and lays his emotions bare before the Lord.  When Jesus instructed us to pray for our enemies, I don’t think he meant quite like this (!), but the Lord knows David’s heart.

Here’s a little beauty in David’s bitterness:

“God’s love is meteoric, His loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic, His verdicts oceanic.
Yet in His largeness nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks” (Psalm 36:5-6 MSG)

Sometimes the psalms show me that no one is perfect, even a “man after God’s own heart”. Psalm 37:5 says to “open up to God, keep nothing back”- David sets a great example for us in that! God knows our hearts and minds, no need for us to hide.
