Today’s Bible Study revealed to me that I need to be honest. Trying to overcome my weight and eating problems, with exercise and dieting are not doing it. Here is a new idea. I am going to write about my obsession and give it over to God.
Christians are not immune from trouble or disease. In my loneliness I feel like David did when he was in the cave writing Psalm 34
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
What you see here are the words of someone who has experienced a broken heart, has been crushed in spirit and found that the Lord was close, that the Lord saved him. And that’s really the heart of the Psalm that we want to look at today. If we taste of the experiences, even the troubles God may take us through, ultimately we will find it will be good. The New Testament corollary, of course is, “For we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, and have been called according to his purpose (Rom. 8:28).” If we take refuge in God, we will be blessed. If we fear and seek the Lord, we are promised we will lack no good thing. It’s not a promise for everything we want, but for everything that is good for us.
“Those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.”
