Praying the Psalms- Psalm 69

Jenny is on a journey of praying her way through the Psalms.  I was fortunate enough to join at the start.  Each weekend, we pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey and join us in Praying the Psalms.

"But I pray to you, O LORD, 
   in the time of your favor; 
in your great love, O God, 
   answer me with your sure salvation."  Psalm 69: 13
These are words that are easier to say than to live.  Waiting for Him to answer in the time of His favor and according to His great love is difficult.  I might think I trust God's timing and wisdom but there are times when truthfully I wonder why everything is not going according to my own plan, my hopes, my dreams.  

This is a truth I have had to explain to my ten-year-old lately as he questions why God did not answer his prayer the way he wanted, at the time he wanted.  I've given him the best solid answers I can, with examples from his own life of waiting on God and receiving a blessing later, but in the end it is something he has to wrestle through with God.  Something we all have to wrestle through, no?  In the end it comes down to faith- do I believe that God is good regardless of my circumstances?  And also, trust- am I willing to endure this circumstance, trusting that He works all things together for good?   

Father, give us faith to believe You are good, You are loving, You are wise, You are working in our lives at all times.  Give us hearts that trust that You will answer in the time of Your favor and in Your great love- hearts that trust in Your timing and love.  Help me to come alongside my son as he wrestles through these truths with You.  In Jesus' name, amen.
