May 23, 2022 - Psalm 140-144

David ends the 144th Psalm: “Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!” (144:15) Why is that? Well, from these psalms . . . because our God delivers us from evil men. Our God hears our pleas for mercy. Our God is a place of refuge. We can tell our troubles to God. Our God surrounds us and deals bountifully with us. Our God is faithful and his love is steadfast. With David, we say of our God, “He is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge” (144:2). Our God rescues us. Our God feeds us.

David, time and time again, calls upon the Lord and rests in him. Like David, we call upon our God. We tell him our troubles. And in him we find all we need. Indeed, “Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!” (144:15)

I must tell Jesus all of my trials;

I cannot bear these burdens alone;

In my distress He kindly will help me;

He ever loves and cares for His own.

I must tell Jesus!

I must tell Jesus!

I cannot bear my burdens alone;

I must tell Jesus!

I must tell Jesus!

Jesus can help me, Jesus alone. -- E. A. Hoffman (1894)
