The Need for Experience | Psalm 94:1-7
Today's Passage: Psalm 94:1-7
Key Verses: Psalm 94:5-7
They crush your people, LORD; they oppress your inheritance. They slay the widow and the foreigner; they murder the fatherless. They say, "The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice."
The psalmist would be the first to say that there are times when it seems "The Lord does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice." The enemy shows up to "crush" God's people, to "oppress" God's inheritance, to "slay the widow", and to "murder the fatherless."
Sometimes it feels like we are alone and on our own. Life hits hard from all sides. We struggle to find our way through the emotional maze. We try to understand how this is going to work out for our good. As we are blasted, the evildoers "are full of boasting."
However, we live life in snapshots, in the pain of the moment - or a string of moments. God sees in video with all the moments weaving perfectly into his master plan. The still shots are painful. One day the divine video will make sense.
Until then, O Lord, we need your help. In the moment it seems like you are absent. We know you are with us, but we have a hard time feeling your presence. Help us today to experience you at work. Move our emotions with the stirring that you are working in our lives. In Jesus' name. Amen.
