Day 19

 

 
 
 

My whole being will exclaim, "Who is like you, Lord? you rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them"

Psalm 35:10

Throughout this entire passage you can sense David’s frustration at the injustice of his circumstances. He clearly feels very much under attack. In the midst of his cry for help he decides that instead of being a describer of his problems, he will describe the nature of God who is kind to people who are being treated unjustly. His commitment is not to simply recite what he knows to be true cognitively, but to put all his passion into exclaiming truth. Essentially he is saying, “even though I may not be ‘feeling’ it’ I’m going to put effort and energy into worshipping.” Jesus encourages us to something really similar when He says to, “love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength”(Luke 10:27). After David commits to worshipping, he continues to petition and ask God for breakthrough.

There is something truly powerful about worshipping God right in the MIDDLE of our battle, and not just worshipping half-heartedly, but with all our being!
