It is believed that David composed this Psalm while on the run after Absalom’s rebellion. Surely, he had to be recalling the days of old when God continually delivered him from Saul’s hands. As he remembered God’s faithfulness, he entered worship mode, lifting his hands in his thirst for the Lord.
Are you going through a trial right now that may seem familiar… One you have endured in the past but you never wanted to have to face again? Just remember all those days long ago. Remember that God has been faithful.
Read your journal or talk to a person who prayed with you and walked by your side through the trial the first time. Do this will remind you about all the ways God has provided. You will be filled with great hope that God will show up again. I encourage you to allow your memories to lead you into a spirit and time of worship.
I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done. I spread out my hands to you; I thirst for you like a parched land. Psalm 143:5-6 NIV
Lord, You are always faithful to show when I needed you. And You’ve always been faithful to bless me with believers in my life that remind me of Your faithfulness. Thank you for all that you do for a flawed man like me. Without you, I can do nothing. I worship and praise You.
