Psalm 22: 25-31
I would like to know the circumstances around David writing Psalm 22. David shares a different lament throughout this chapter, “”why have you forsaken me; I am a worm, scorned by others; many bulls encircle me, my heart is like wax; dogs encircle me and my hands and feet are shriveled.” In the midst of his pain and anguish, David acknowledges God has been there time and time again to rescue him and then shows us how the ‘great congregation’ will be blessed and remembered by God.
What do we have to do to receive this blessing? According to Psalm 22: 25-31: Fear God, praise the Lord, turn to God, worship the Lord, bow down before the Lord, and tell others what God has done.
Is that an easy task or a difficult task for us? Joshua reminds us, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
I invite you to attend the Confirmation Service this Sunday and listen to the youth sing a song to God, “I Won’t Give Up.”
Holy God, we do acknowledge you as our Lord and Savior and know that you have done your part to save us and make our lives easier. We will be more committed, especially during this Eastertide, to praise you, worship you and share with others what you continue to do on our behalf. Don’t give up on us. Amen
