Sustain Me

Today's reading: Psalm 119:113-120 (Samekh)

In Psalm 119:113-120 (Samekh), the psalmist is under attack and is speaking out against those who are acting sinfully. So as the psalmist talks with God, he contrasts himself to this group by repeatedly confirming his love of God and His Word. He then claims God as his shield and strength, calling on God to "Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live" (vs. 116) and to "Hold me up, that I may be safe..." (vs. 117).

Why is it important to tell God that you love Him and that you are grateful for His Word? What's one example of how God's Word has sustained you when you've come under attack, encountered difficulty or experienced loss? Tami
