Psalm 55:18: My Voice

Monday, July 8, 2019

Psalm 55:18In the evening, in the morning, and at noonday, I will complain and lament, and he will hear my voice. 

When I read this, I understand that I am not the only one who calls on God incessantly.  This gives me comfort and hope.  Comfort because I am not alone.  Hope because God has acted in the lives of so many people, why would he not act in mine?  I will set my petitions before him to show him that I understand my proper relationship with him: he is the creator, I am the creation.

God says: Do not worry that I might become tired of hearing your pleas.  I answer your requests as they best fit your own plan and the plan of salvation.  I do not mind that you become angry with me; my love for you can handle that.  I do not mind that you feel I do not love you; my love for you is bigger than that.  I do not mind if you turn from me; my love perseveres and endures forever.  I do not mind . . . I love you.

Let your voice rise to God like incense in the night.  Ask, and you will receive.
