Tuesday’s Time

I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication (Psalm 142: 1).

Peter wrote for the child of God to cast all his cares upon the Lord, because the Lord cares for us (I Peter 5:7). To whom do you tell your cares and concerns? To whom do you tell your innermost thoughts?

I pray that you have a dear friend, a confidant whom you can trust and upon whom you can rely. But, at best our friends know what we portray and what we tell them. God, who created us, knows our words, deeds, desires and needs. David and Jonathan were the closest of friends, but it was God on whom David relied.

The word used by Peter, which is translated “cares” is defined as interested. God is interested in His children and their needs. Do you ever grow weary of a friend and their continuous need or concern? God does not grow weary of our continuous need, but He pleads with His children to bring their troubles to Him. 

Our friends may have interest in us and our situations, but they may not always have the true answer or ability to provide the solution. God always has an interest and God is always able to provide the solution to our needs.  From this short psalm let us remember at least three points:

  • God is the one to whom we take our needs.
  • God desires us to bring our needs to Him.
  • God is able to more than satisfy our needs.
