Psalm 50 is on my mind as I lay in the bed. So I just got up to read it. I am troubled. I have prayed and prayed and prayed tonight. Throughout the day. For weeks I’ve desired to not worry my prayers to God. Tonight I am asking God to allow me to breakthrough into a prayer of power and strong faith.
So now at 12:30 AM I get out of bed to read Psalm 50. In verse 10, God tells his people he owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Every bird and animal belongs to him.
Verse 14 God states, “What I want instead is your true thanks to God; I want you to fulfill your vows to the Most High.” Hear what God says here in verse 15, “Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”
Psalm 50 ends with these two verses: “Repent, all of you who ignore me, or I will tear you apart, and no one will help you. But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.” (23 – 24, NLT).
Do you find yourself in a time of trouble? Do you need God’s help? Then keep to His path! Walk His road. Live in obdience to His Word. Love Him. Trust Him. And give Him thanks!
He’s not looking for our sacrifices – our burnt offerings. He is asking that we repent… trust him in our time of trouble… give Him thanks – this is the sacrifice He is looking for. God wants us to stay true to Him. Put our trust only in Him. He owns it all. Everything belongs to Him. Repent and keep to His path and we will see His salvation.
