"Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper." (Psalm 31:10)
Psalm 30 is a psalm of king David, and was sung at the dedication service for his house of cedar that he had built for himself.
I think it is important to celebrate God's blessings, and to dedicate what God has given us back unto Him.
And, certainly, David had reason to celebrate. God has taken him from the sheepfold, and made him king. He is no longer running for his life from king Saul, and hiding in the wilderness. And, he no longer lives in a cave, but a house of cedar! He certainly should be grateful, and write a song. If there was a dog and a pick-up truck involved, it would be a hit-sensation in the country music market.
But, David prays for something in verse 10 that is remarkable. "...LORD, be thou my helper." David knew who had helped him. He wanted that help again, and always.
Let that be our prayer, today, and everyday! "Lord, I want you to be my helper. Amen."
From my heart to your heart.
