Known

A few days ago I was reading in Psalm 142.  Verses 1 – 2 stunned me.  Look at what David is doing:
  • Cry aloud
  • Make supplication
  • Pour out my complaint
  • Declare my trouble
God already knows our attitude, our anger, our situation.  In fact He is there with us.  He just wants us to acknowledge His presence and follow Him in rest through it all.
David’s model here for us is to pour all out before God.  David complains about his situation, he shares his trouble, he cries out.  Look at what David says about his relationship with God in verse 3, David’s spirit was overwhelmed, God knew David’s path.  This is consistent with Psalm 139:1 – 6.  When we come to the Lord with our trouble, our complaint, anger with Him, our overwhelming burdens, He already knows.  He is with us on that path.  Psalm 23:4 affirms it.

He shares – no He directs our path, that is why we can navigate the horrors of this life – He is with us and He wants us to call on His strength to rest in Him.
