God on the sidelines?
"God, don’t just watch from the sidelines.
Come on! Run to my side!
My accusers—make them lose face.
Those out to get me—make them look
Like idiots, while I stretch out, reaching for you,
and daily add praise to praise." - Psalm 71:12-14 (Message)
Sometimes we feel that God is an uninterested by-stander in our daily lives - that God could intervene, but doesn't actually get involved in things. Is that how you feel at times?
David seems to believe otherwise, that is why he asks God to run to his side. He holds onto the belief that God will come to his rescue and help him out of his trouble.
Daniel 6:16 - “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!”
I have yet to figure out how and why God acts in our daily lives, but I do believe that GOD DOES CARE and that He will not watch from the sidelines when we are in distress.
Living in Grace
