Scripture:

Psalm 22:22 & 29 I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.

v. 29 All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, even the one who could not keep himself alive.

Observation:

The Psalm is considered a Messianic Psalm due to its prophetic tones and thoughts that mirror Christ’s time on the cross and His resurrection.

In this Psalm, David reminds us that God in never far away and that he delivers us from death. David calls on believers to trust God as he did. David recognizes that by trusting God we will receive deliverance and will praise God for what He has done for us.

Application:

David knows that God delivered him and is not afraid to share the message. I should not be afraid to share the message, no matter what my circumstance is at any given time.

Also, I reminded that our God rules everything. We will all face God. We will all worship Him. People live and people die. Nations rise and fall. But God is constant. He remains forever and we have the chance to be with Him if we choose. I must live my life with long term goals not short term goals in mind.

Prayer:

Give me the strength, courage and attitude similar to the one displayed by David. Give me the confidence to share your word and live by the knowledge of your long term plans for me.
