13 April 2021 – Psalm 4:1(NIV)

Scripture

Answer me when I call to you,
    my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
    have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

Reflection

In today’s verse David takes on a pleading posture towards God. To call God a righteous God is not much for God’s reminder, but for our own, and to come to Him asking to answer to his needs is to imply that He is the defender of David’s righteousness.

Our God is a righteous God and He is the defender of our righteous cause!

In our time of need and distress we can come to Him. Maybe this word is for you and me today, or maybe it is for us to plead on behalf of those around us.

“If you look at the world you’ll be distressed. If you look within you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest.” – Corrie Ten Boom
