Psalms 7 – 9, Acts 18 • Key Verse: Psalm 9:10
To the casual observer, the wedding party looked typical. The bride wore white; her groom stood tall next
to her. The bridal party had the usual complement of bridesmaids, groomsmen, a matron of honor, best
man, flower girl and ring bearer. But there was an interesting difference—nearly everyone in the group was
a close relative.
Over the years the bride and groom had observed that people eventually lose track of their
“close” friends from college days, but one will always have his family. So they chose to make
their wedding a family affair. Friends may come and go, they reasoned, but family stays.
As you think of former friends, perhaps ones that left you feeling deserted, consider this praise
David gave to God: “You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you” (9:10). Knowing that
God would be his forever friend, David also wrote, “Those who know your name will trust in
you.”
In God’s faithfulness we find comfort, and since He never forsakes us, we can trust in Him.
David wrote those words in a time of difficulty. He recognized that the Lord is a refuge, a
stronghold in times of trouble, and in those times his trust was in God. Is yours?
Is there some difficulty in your life? Do you feel alone? Remember, God will never forsake you.
Ask Him to help you experience the peace that comes when you truly trust in Him.
