“Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.” Psalm 3:2

Every now and then Pat and I have the same discussion about sleep. I go right to sleep and she stays awake. I tell her the reason is a good conscience; but she says that I have a short memory.

David was in an impossible situation. He had a handful of worn out but faithful friends. Thousands of enemy soldiers were all about him. "There is no help for him, they say.”

A lot of sentences begin with the words, “They say.” It is difficult to know who “They” are; yet a lot of people trust these unknown experts on every subject in life. David refused to listen to the “They” because he knew that the Lord was listening to his prayer.

David said, "I cried out to the Lord, and He heard me...I lay down and slept, I awoke because the Lord sustained me." He slept peacefully in the middle of all his enemies because he chose not to listen to "THEY," but to the very one who spoke the world into being.

We too have a choice as to whom we will listen to and trust. Gloom and doom need not destroy our faith, or rule our life. We can sing the scripture, “I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.”

When “they” speak confusion and discouragement, we have a Savior who whispers sweet peace.

Grace and Peace, Rev Ray
