Asking with Trust

Today's reading: Psalm 35:1-28

One of the reasons I enjoy the Psalms is that we get to see the candid manner in which so many of the writers talk with God. That's exactly the case with David in Psalm 35. Holding back nothing, David pours out his heart, imploring God to deal with those people who have been mistreating him and are set on repaying his good deeds with evil. My favorite thing about this psalm is the "before the fact" trust in God David demonstrates. He is already confident as he's making the request that God will act on his behalf.

When you ask God for help, is trusting Him part of your equation? Tami
