Description

Commentary - Data Source:  Life Applications Bible

Psalms 86:7: "Sometimes our trouble or pain is so great that all we can do is cry out to God, "Preserve my soul" or "Protect me" (86:2).  We feel so poor and needy.  Many times when there is no relief in sight, all we can do is acknowledge the greatness of God and wait for better days ahead.  The conviction that God answers prayers will sustain us in such difficult times.

86:8-10: The God of the Bible is unique! He is alive and able to work mighty miracles for those who love him.  All man-created deities are powerless before him because they are merely inventions of the mind, not living beings.  The Lord alone is "worthy to receive glory and honor and power" (Revelation 4:11).  Although people around the world believe in many heathen deities, you need never fear that God is only one among many or that you may be worshipping that wrong God.  The Lord alone is God.

86:11-12: "To fear thy name" means to give reverence to God, and wholehearted reverence means appreciating God and honoring him in all areas of life.  We need to show our loyalty to him in every part of our lives, not just in going to church.  If we reverence God with our whole heart, then our work, relationships, use of money, an desires will be in keeping with his will.

86:17: "It is right to pray for a sign of God's goodness.  As David found, it may be just what we need.  But let us not overlook the signs he has already given: the support of family and friends, the fellowship of other Christians, the light of each new day.  Most of all, God gives us the confidence that he knows our situation, no matter how desperate it becomes - He cares".
