Psalm 9:10 - A promise from God
Over the last several months I keep getting a message from God: "Seek me." It seems that everywhere I turn I receive a reminder that I need to be seeking God. I'm in a season where I need to train myself to maintain my focus on Him.
In the past I've become easily distracted. Circumstances in the world or my own life have caused me to look away from the Lord. Or my depression and anxiety have given my tunnel vision. I forget about God completely. I understand the Israelites in the desert worshiping their idols instead of the one true God. I get how they got there, even after witnessing all His amazing acts. God is the Faithful One, not us.
Lately I've become a little weary. I keep thinking, "What now, Lord? What's my next step? I know I need to seek You. I'm doing it. I'm in Your Word. I'm praying. I'm being obedient. What now?" I feel like maybe I'm ready for more. And then yesterday I happened to read Psalm 9:10. "And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you."
He will not forsake me. I just have to keep seeking Him. He's not going to leave me in the lurch. And I know His name. He is...
El Shaddai - Lord Almighty
Adonai - Lord, Master
Jehovah-Raah - The Lord My Shepherd
Jehovah Jireh - The Lord Will Provide
Jehovah Shalom - The Lord Is Peace
My God is almighty and He is my Lord. He shepherds me and provides all my needs. He is my peace even in the chaos. I'm holding on to that promise from the Lord, He will not forsake me.
