Psalm 70 🔊 1MAKE HASTE, O GOD, TO DELIVER ME; MAKE HASTE TO HELP ME, O LORD. 2Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt. 3Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha. 4Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified. 5But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
Today's Scripture Meaning The speedy destruction of the wicked, and the preservation of the godly. - This psalm is almost the same as the last five verses of (Ps 40). While here we behold Jesus Christ set forth in poverty and distress, we also see him denouncing just and fearful punishment on his Jewish, heathen, and antichristian enemies; and pleading for the joy and happiness of his friends, to his Father's honour. Let us apply these things to our own troubled circumstances, and in a believing manner bring them, and the sinful causes thereof, to our remembrance. Urgent trials should always awake fervent prayers.
Today's Scripture Application Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the Book of Psalm with Chapter 70. In our text today we see a theme of an urgent prayer for help when in need. In making application we see that our Lord is just a prayer away. Our Lord hears our prayers and responds according to His Will. A simple prayer of "Lord help me" can move mountains in our lives. As a Christian we have the living God of the universe that owns it all and can do all things. How about you? Are you facing an obstacle that seems to be overwhelming? Let us learn from our Psalm and text today to remember that our Lord hears us and is only a Prayer away.
