上帝有时似乎很遥远，没有在聆听我们。想想以色列几百年间艰受奴役，祈求上帝应许的拯救者。 “上帝在听吗？” 他们一定是一再怀疑的。然而，在正确的时间，上帝派他的儿子，带来了解脱。值得庆幸的是，上帝不要求我们假装一切正常。他在诗篇中呼喊拯救和帮助。你可能会发现自己在某些诗句里找到共鸣。如果你找到的话，那么今天你要认识到今日诗句的成千上万的参与者都在祈祷上帝的对你直接而有力的拯救。
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
God sometimes seems to be distant and not to be listening to us. Think of the hundreds of years Israel was in bondage praying for God's promised Deliverer. "Isn't God listening?" they must have repeatedly wondered. Yet at the right time, God sent his Son and brought deliverance. Thankfully, God doesn't ask us to pretend that everything is okay when it isn't. He filled the Psalms with cries for deliverance and help. You may find yourself in a position where these words are yours. If you are, realize that thousands of Today's Verse participants are praying today for God's immediate and powerful deliverance of you.
Almighty God, may your name be revered in all the earth just as it is among the angels of heaven. Show the power and might of your Kingdom in our day. Deliver your Church and your children from the hands of the evil one. Bring deliverance to your children who are crying for your help with spiritual, family, health, or financial problems they are having. May our lives be lived to your glory, now and forevermore. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
