[Calvary Chapel] 2017-06-29 - I Am Heard in Heaven

Psalms 6:8-10 Depart from me, all you who do iniquity,
For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
9 1he Lord has heard my supplication,
The Lord receives my prayer.
10 All my enemies will be ashamed and greatly dismayed;
They shall turn back, they will suddenly be ashamed

David is writing a Psalm, a song, Pleading to God in a time of trouble. In the last three verses David claims victory over those trials and those that would be not unlike Job's friends. Those who would speak ill of David, and his relationship with God. David trusts the Lord's promises that our voice is heard when we come humbly, thankful for His grace and mercy.

David went to God in his time of trouble. This is something we should do as well - first. I will admit that I am often seeking trusted friends first to pray and agree with me. While this is not a bad thing it's not the best. We were made to have fellowship with our Creator. Prayer in times of difficulty is a safe refuge, knowing that we are heard in the throne room of Heaven.

Our inner circle of friends are a blessing not unlike the 12 disciples. They were taught by Jesus as they walked from town to town or sat around a fire making dinner. They would talk amongst themselves, but Jesus was the center of that group. There were times they got it right and other times when they missed the mark - like us. But Jesus heard them like He hears His children - us.


Lord Jesus - We are so thankful for Your mercy and grace toward us even when we've blown it. Help us to come to you first when we have troubles and trials. Thank you for that circle of friends You have placed in our lives who will add their voices to our prayers as we add ours to theirs. Thank you for this blessing. Amen.

Grace & Peace,
