PSALM 138:8

The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure for ever; forsake not the works of Your own hands.

DEFINITION

Concern — d) a matter of importance to one, worry or anxiety

Perfect — d) to bring to completion

The Lord tells us in Matthew 6:34 not to worry or be anxious about tomorrow, that He is all ready there making it work for our good. So there is nothing to be anxious about. Although He tells us not to worry, Psalm 138:8 is saying that He will perfect or bring to completion all my concerns or worries.

He tells us not to worry, and yet He knows that we do. So he is so very understanding and willing to perfect all of our worries when we should not even have them. We are the work of His hands. If He feeds all the birds, He can surly handle me. He gently bends down to us as a father bends down to his child and lovingly says, “Let me have it and rest in My arms.”

SUBJECT — PRAYER OF FAITH — STREAMS IN THE DESERT

I have made this one test of my prayers, if after committing anything to God, I can like Hannah, come away and have my mind no more sad, my heart no more pained or anxious, I look upon it as proof that I have prayed in faith, but if I bring away my burden, I conclude that faith was not in exercise.

SUBJECT — THE LITTLES OF OUR LITTLE WORLD — CH SPURGEON

Not a nerve or tissue, valve or vessel of our bodily organization is uncared for; all the littles of our little world are thought upon by the Great God. The Lord liveth and thinketh upon us, this is a truth far too precious for us to be lightly robbed of it.

  1. Great post.. We surely can be anxious at times. I know I can be. Get myself so worked up and for what? It never happens. My Pastor use to tell us all the time in church. That 80 % of the things we worry about never happen.

    that is so true.
