Psalms 39 - No Time For Quitting

This is a Psalm of David that I can relate to as far as pressing forward in the face of adversity. Some days it seems like you are punished for walking as a Christian and doing the right thing. I realized that if I am going to rein with Jesus I will have to suffer just like He did.


GOD dropped this in my spirit today: Keep going. There is no time for quitting. Be persistent! Testimonies will come, Breakthroughs will come. Bombard Heaven with your prayers.

Meditation

The Lord said, "My grace is sufficient for you , for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor. 12:9 NIV


For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David. 1 I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.” 2 So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased; 3 my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: 4 “Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. 6 “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be. 7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. 8 Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools. 9 I was silent; I would not open my mouth, for you are the one who has done this. 10 Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand. 11 When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin, you consume their wealth like a moth— surely everyone is but a breath. 12 “Hear my prayer, Lord, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. I dwell with you as a foreigner, a stranger, as all my ancestors were. 13 Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again before I depart and am no more.” Psalms 39 NIV
