Pondering Psalms 40:16—17

“But may all who seek you

rejoice and be glad in you;

may those who love your salvation

say continually, “Great is the LORD!”

As for me, I am poor and needy,

but the Lord takes thought for me.

You are my help and my deliverer;

do not delay, O my God!”

Psalms 40:16—17

My take: We see here, like any relationship (and ours with Father God certainly is), it is a two-way path. God seeks us and in return, He expects us to follow hard after Him.

Do you continually say, “Great is the LORD” with the heart, soul, mind and strength? (which He and only He made possible) David has a wonderful mindset of humility and boldness.

We are ALL poor and needy, apart from God. But those who respond to His outreach have a special place in the LORD’s heart. He thinks of us individually. That is amazing!

My prayer: Great are you God! You know that and it’s good for me to know and live that out and in. I would be absolutely nothing without You.
