Lean on Him · Prayer · Psalm 143 · Trust

lean on Him… Psalm 143:8…

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
Psalm 143:8 ESV
What this psalmist needed most to hear… be assured of… was God’s steadfast love for him… and his confident cry… petition… comes from a heart of trust…
Trusting Him gives us confidence to cry out to Him… for what we need…
Jesus told us… we have a good Father in heaven… who will give us exactly what we need…
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! …”
Matthew 7:7-11 ESV
Trusting our heavenly Father… gives us confidence to ask… because we know… He will give us what’s good…
Do you need to hear… be assured… of His steadfast love for you today…?
Do you need to know… the way to go…? 
Trust Him…
lift up your soul to Him…
take the psalmist’s prayer…
make it yours…
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,
that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:16 ESV
