“Confirm what you said to your servant, for it produces reverence for you.”
Maybe you think you’ve heard from God in the middle of a confusing time and/or a season of potentially deep sadness.
Psalm 119:38 is a reminder to ask God to confirm what you think He’s telling you. Doing so will not only produce reverence for God, as it says, but will also make a sad heart glad by experiencing the TENDER love of God.
Says a wise Noel Paul Stookey in his song Be Ye Glad…
“Now from your dungeon a rumor is stirring though you’ve heard it again and again. Ah! But this time the cell keys are turning and outside there are faces of friends.”
Romans 8:15 calls God the Father “Abba”. Abba is an affectionate name God gives us for himself like we call grandparents or parents “PaPa”, “Grampy”, “Daddy”, etc.
Abba moves on your behalf and has for you a favorable answer to your cries for help or clarity.
Trust in Him.
He loves you more than you can ever comprehend but knows how to communicate His love to you in a unique way. He labors in the mineshafts of our spirits and has His hand on the lever of the living spring within by way of His loving presence.
He will turn it on for you if you ask Him.
Just ask Him and wait. He doesn’t do it right away all the time because He just wants to know you’re willing to wait for it.
He is faithful and true and bound by His own eternal word to deliver us.
