Today From Psalms

Help When Weary

The wonder of God’s Word is brought out again and again in the Bible but especially in Psalm 119. God gave His Word for a multitude of reasons. One reason for the Word of God is to be our daily help no matter what we might be dealing with.

Becoming weary with life in general and with pursuing a godly life is true of us all. Paul tells us: “Be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9

The only way we can have strength to go on is by the Word of God. “My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.” Psalms 119:81

To daily maintain a good relationship with the Heavenly Father is a battle. It is because the enemy relentlessly seeks to draw us away from God. At times we can honestly say: “My soul fainteth.”  What helps me when I feel like fainting is the Word God. Notice again what the psalmist adds after speaking of fainting: “but I hope in thy word.”

Then there are people who David describes in the following way: “The proud have digged pits for me…. they persecute me wrongfully.” Psalms 119:85-86

Learning to love all people; learning to be patient and kind together is often wearisome. In the end we need God to “Quicken me after thy lovingkindness.” Psalms 119:88

All this comes from knowing God’s Word and allowing it to strengthen our daily walk with God.   It is no wonder that we read: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God… That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
