Confident Supplication

Text: Psalm 27:7-14
Speaker: Mike Kelley
Date: September 19, 2010

Tomorrow I am planning to finish the psalm we began last week. Our text will be
Psalm 27:7-14. We switch gears from that of Confident Living to that of
Confident Supplication. In this section we see David properly captured as the
man who “seeks” after his LORD. Through good times and bad, David models for
us a protocol of steadfast intimacy with his God. He knows his help is in the
LORD; to the LORD he goes! Such “seeking” produced for David an enhanced
confidence that allowed him to successfully deal with each and every difficult
circumstance of his life. Simply stated, God gave him grace to continue
trusting Him! The fruit I am hoping our time together will produce is fairly
simple, yet potentially a great blessing: That we can be certain that our
humble, earnest prayers (like David’s), are heard by an all-knowing God who is
both for us and will faithfully lead us through whatever difficulty we find
ourselves in the midst of.

I would encourage you to read the whole of this psalm and perhaps also Psalm
34. As you do so, reflect upon God’s past mercies and present supports. Come
with hearts prepared for worship.

I am looking forward to being with you all tomorrow. Pray that the Word would
have its way with us all.
