Caption: WHAT! IS GOD DAVID’S BOY?
‘’Get up, GOD! Are you going to sleep all day? Wake up! Don’t you care what happens to us? Why do you bury your face in the pillow? Why pretend things are just fine with us? And here we are–flat on our faces in the dirt, held down with a boot on our necks. Get up and come to our rescue. If you love us so much, Help us!’’ Psalms 44:23-26 MessageBible.
What do you have to say with the way David spoke or prayed to God? Is God his boy? Does God sleep or does He leave His own? At times, it looks as if it’s true but he that keeps Israel doesn’t sleep neither does He forsake His own. The reason for David’s kind of this prayer to God is simply RELATIONSHIP. A Father to Son relationship. He’s a man after God’s heart.
I kept laughing as I read through the above Scriptures. The truth is, God doesn’t want us to relate with Him as God only, but as Father as well. The way you’ll talk to your father will be different from the way others do. What others beg for, you get for free. Do you have a relationship with Him? If not, start now.
Action cue: Having started a new relationship with God, tell Him your strong reasons why He must help you.
JESUS IS GOD!
