October 13, 2020. - with special guest, Elizabeth Nader - LISTEN HEREPsalm 86:7, 12-13
Psalm 86 is so beautiful. David was crying out to God for courage at a time when his enemies were trying to kill him. After he made his petitions for help known to God, he then praised and worshiped the Lord for His power, trustworthiness, and goodness.
We all have stress in our lives. More than 50% of patients that come to see me these days at my medical clinic list “anxiety” and/or “insomnia” as their chief complaint.
I wish I could toss my “medical stuff” out the window and simply pray with these folks. Pray that they would lay their worries at the feet of the Lord. Pray they would keep their eyes fixed on Him and not on the problem. Pray the Be Attitudes with them – reminding them that worry doesn’t add a day to their life. The prayer would assure them that God is in charge and He doesn’t want you to have a divided mine – one split between worry and rest. The Lord promised He would never abandon us in times of stress.
Read all of Psalm 86. Listen to the wonderful conversation I had with my guest, Elizabeth Nadar, who loves her friends and fans back to health.
Dear Lord, David says it best in this Psalm 86 to you:
“Listen, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Protect my life, for I am faithful.You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You. Be gracious to me, Lord, for I call to You all day long. Bring joy to Your servant’s life, because I turn to You, Lord. For You are kind and ready to forgive, rich in faithful love to all who call on You. Lord, hear my prayer; listen to my plea for mercy. Lord, there is no one like You and there are no works like Yours. All the nations You have made will bow down before You, Lord, and will honor Your name. For You are great and perform wonders; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, Yahweh, and I will live by Your truth. Give me an undivided mind to worship and honor Your name. I will praise You with all my heart, Lord my God, and will honor Your name forever."
