“Whom have I in heaven but You? And I have no delight or desire on earth besides You. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the Rock and firm strength of my heart and my Portion forever.”
(Psalm 73:25,26, Amplified Study Bible)
Child, God the Father is reaching out to you today. He is whispering your name. The world has failed you, people have disappointed and ridiculed you. You look in the mirror and don’t know who that is looking back at you.
I can say these things because I have been there. I have done that.
But like David, I have learned to say, “GOD is the strength of my heart.” He is my refuge, my security…my hope. God is the constant in my life when all else fails. Oh, be sure. God is not rude nor is He going to run begging to you to break down your stubborn walls.
No. He is God.
He is not a beggar.
He will call to you. He will seek you out in your darkness and He will fully desire that you respond. And, yes, you will know that He is longing for you.
But it is your choice.
It is your misery or His peace.
It is your pride or His love.
Again, you choose.
Psalm 61:2 reads, “From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; Lead me to the Rock that is higher that I; Yes, a Rock that is higher than I.”
David made a choice. Forevermore, throughout the Psalms, David made a choice to love God – to worship Him and give Him praise, even on the days he least felt like it.
That is a key to the Kingdom.
Worship and praise, even on the days you least feel like it.
Again, it’s your choice.
Whom have I in heaven but You, Lord? There is nothing on this earth I desire besides You. You are the One on Whom I can depend. You are the lifter of my head when the world pulls me down. You are my peace when I am overwhelmed. You are my strength when my body feels like it can’t go on. Thank You, Lord. Thank You for Your faithfulness to Your children. Open our eyes that we might see. Praise You, Father.
