Ps 55

:1-5 David talks to God about his enemies oppressing him

:6-8 David really wants to flee the trial he was in at this time. Ever feel that way? No, trials are not fun to go through, if they were fun, they wouldn't be trials. Some are harder then others. But just as David couldn't fly away from his, we can't run from ours. We have to go through it, not over it. It is how we grow our faith.

:9 Brings him back to God asking for God to destroy them.

:10-11 He continues to document to God what they have done. Do you think God needed a full accounting of what they did to David? Or for that matter from us when people do something wrong to us? Now I am not saying don't tell God, but don't tell Him over and over.

:12-14 Here David explains it was a friend. Those wounds are always the ones that hurt the most aren't they?

:15-19 He asks God to deal with them again.

:20-21 He again talks about what was done to him

:22-23 He says he will trust God.

What are you believing for?

The post below this one has a wonderful song. It tells of believing in miracles. Do you believe God is still working miracles today? I do! He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. So since in the past He worked miracles that means He is still doing them. But in order to receive your (or my) miracle we must truly believe. Without doubting. At all.

That last part is hard sometimes isn't it? Or is it just hard sometimes for me? That is possible. But I think if we are all honest we must admit that sometimes doubt creeps in.

Deut 1:32 Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,

Are you truly believing God in the thing you are praying for?

Isaiah 43:10 KJV
Ye are My witnesses, saith the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen : that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He: before Me there was no God formed , neither shall there be after Me.

Here is reason to believe Him.

Matthew 9:28 KJV
And when He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto Him, Yea, Lord.

Are you believing for healing?

Mark 9:23 KJV
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe , all things are possible to him that believeth .

Jesus said all things are possible if we will believe. We know He only spoke truth.

Mark 11:23 KJV
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed , and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass ; he shall have whatsoever he saith .

Not doubt in his heart. Alot of times that is our problem with believing for a miracle.

So again, what are you believing for? And how are you preventing doubt to enter into your heart?
