And, like the psalmist, I believe and trust that God is going to deliver me. I even on some level have an excitement about what God is going to do. I just know that He is going to do something grand in my life. Even if it isn’t grand by the world’s standards, it will be a blessing by mine.

"As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God!" (v. 17).

How often have I wanted to say, “Do not delay God! Please work quickly!” I know that God’s timing is always perfect. Maybe I should say that it always results in the perfect thing, but His timing definitely does not feel perfect sometimes. Sometimes perfect to me means right now. Who am I kidding? Not sometimes—all the time!

But I trust Him. I know Him to be faithful, and I know that He will always and only do what is the very best thing for me and mine.

"As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain your mercy from me; your steadfast love and your faithfulness will ever preserve me!" (v. 11).

He’s taking me to a deeper understanding of His love for me. It’s a glorious thing, but oh, I have so much to work through in my own heart so that I can receive all that He has in store for me.

Thankfully He does not leave me to work alone. He is totally in charge of the work and the worksite! I’m excited to see what He does and where He takes me in His Word and in my life.

God is teaching me so much about Himself and myself. I can’t wait to share. I just want to get my thoughts in order and make sure that what I share blesses you.

Praying that you will seek God, be glad in Him and continually say, “Great is the Lord!”

"But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!” (v. 16).
