Psalm 86:1-17 Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy...
What does the psalmist say about his need (86:1-7)? About the character of God (86:2-10)? What does he want to learn from the Lord and why (86:11-13)? How does 86:15-17 influence your view of God when you're faced with difficulties? When you're needy, what helps you focus on God's character and give thanks?
I love the Psalms written by David. You never have to wonder what's on his heart because he tells it like it is. His relationship and communications with the Lord are open, honest and real.
So what can we do to capture the attitude and approach of David? How can we use and draw upon this Psalm to help us with whatever our circumstances are today? Tami W.
