Women In Discipleship
Weekly Devotionals for 2007 – The Psalms
 
August - Week 32
Weekly Reading:  Psalm 39
(Go to www.BibleGateway.com for complete text)
 
"Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am."  Psalm 39:4
 
Have you experienced times when everything in this world seems to be a burden. The need for relief may have appeared hopeless yet in the "pit of despair" a glimmer of hope appears. This Psalm is likened to that of Job's lament. David was heavy in sorrow and despair.
 
Silence is a key to this litany. Like Job, no words were spoken for a time. Accusations and sorrow mixed for a time of true sorrow.
 
David asks the LORD to reveal his end (v.4). He recognized the frail state of the human condition. Life is indeed frail, like a vapor, and David knew this. Then something occurs to David. "And now LORD, what do I wait for? My hope is in You!"
 
When all the money is made and spent, all the jobs are done, and all the wealth of this world is complete, what then? David's sojourn was this life. His eternal future was his Lord, and the only thing that he desired was to have fellowship with the eternal Lord of all! May this be our desire as well. This life is indeed a sojourn. We have work to do, but the rest of the story is life eternal with the Lord.
 
May it be well with our souls,
