Hear My Cry, O Lord

“Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
be gracious to me and answer me!” (Psalm 27:7, ESV)

As David wrote Psalm 27, in verse 7, he pivoted from praise to prayer. There is a sense of plaintiff cry for help in verses 7 to 14. In the original language, verse 7 is succinct and direct: “Hear, O Lord; with my voice I call; pity me, and answer me” (Pulpit Commentary).

Know God, No Fear

“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1, KJV)

This psalm of King David speaks of a personal YHWH who enlightens, guides, protects, and empowers the psalmist and freed him from the fear of others, of the known and the unknown. This ultimately causes him to seek God’s face and presence “all the days of his life” (Ps. 27:4). In poetic form, this three-part psalm consists of confident praise (vv. 1-6), plantiff prayer (vv. 7-12), and waiting hope (vv. 13-14) (Pulpit Commentary).

As children of God, we too know Him who is the way-maker, the truth-teller, and the life-giver. May we likewise pursue Christ with the constancy of heart, mind, and soul. Because He is my God, I need not fear. Shalom.

Integrity will be Tested and Rewarded

The integrity of the upright guides them,
    but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. ~ Proverbs 11:3 (NIV)

“If you want to influence others, the most important thing you can do is be a living example of the principles, ideals, and faith that you advocate.” ~ Nick Vujicic

In Old Testament Hebrew, “integrity” means in a state of completeness, perfection, soundness, uprightness, and wholeness without blemish. Similarly, in New Testament Greek, it means honesty and having a habit of good works.

“Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.” ~ Proverbs 4:25-27 (NIV)

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” ~ Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
