For me, one of the wonderful things about the Psalms of David is the opportunity we have to see the heart of this mighty warrior. We see in Psalm 18, David’s overwhelming love for God, as well as his understanding that God is the One who grants him victory in his battles. Compare this attitude to other famous conquerors, such as Alexander the Great or Napoleon. They were men of great pride, who received praise and glory from the people around them. David never speaks of his own greatness and glory in battle, but rather gives all the glory and praise to the Lord. That’s why God called him “a man after My own heart.” He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. Psalm 18:16-17

Jesus sets the pattern for burden bearing. He calls to Himself all who are heavy-laden and gives them rest (Matthew 11:28-29). Since God wants us to conform to Christ’s likeness, we must imitate His care and concern for those who suffer. Acts 4:32 shows that the early church followed His example. To lift the load of poverty and despair, they pooled their resources so that no one was in need. A believer cannot wait until his life is clear of obstacles before reaching out to others, since that day may never come. Even though we have our own needs, we can still reach out to someone who is going through adversity.

Genesis 43:29
Joseph looked up and saw his brother Benjamin. Then he declared, ‘May God be gracious to you, my son.’
Have you ever wished that someone would just look up and see what you are facing? The Lord wants to bring people into your life who will lift the load and help you.
The Lord will bring those into your life who will speak blessing over you, who will help you. I speak blessing over you: ‘May God be gracious to you, my friend.’

PRAYER: Lord, I receive Your blessing and favour spoken over my life. Thank You that You will bring the right people into my life who will help, guide and stand by me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
