Psalm 119.107

This is your place

“I am exceedingly afflicted; revive me, O Lord, according to Your word” [Psalm 119.107 NASB]

David was a man after God's own heart and he was not prone to exaggeration. Therefore, when he used the expression, "Exceedingly afflicted" we can regard it as the truth.

His situation was similar to that of the new converts in Antioch, whom the apostles encouraged “… to continue in the faith, reminding them that they must enter into the Kingdom of God through many tribulations" [Acts 14.22 NLT]

Are some of us under various and previously unknown forms of attack? Whatever or whoever it was that David was facing, physical or spiritual, he needed God to come quickly to his aid. Is the enemy very near to extinguishing your light forever?

What should be our course of action? We could do nothing better than to imitate the Hebrew believers, who were in danger of permanently losing their earthly possessions, and their overseer encouraged them to keep their eyes fixed on the Lord [Hebrews 12.1, 2].

It is all too easy, when we are surrounded by many manifestations of the enemy's activity, to have fear that they are too numerous and powerful for us to overcome - like Elisha's attendant felt before Elisha prayed that God would open his eyes to see the chariots of fire that were there as well [2 Kings 6.15-17].

At one time the Lord said to me, "You have blown this thing up out of all proportion". Has the enemy placed a large magnifying glass in your hands? Has he altered your vision in an effort to accomplish his purposes?

After being exceedingly afflicted by the enemy, the Lord was "filled with the Holy Spirit's power" [Luke 4.14 NLT]. His triumph was evident and witnessed by many where He lived.

The place where the enemy devises and executes his plan to put an end to you will be the same place where God will quicken you with His word and you will, like the Lord, experience for yourself God's ministry of liberation and restoration. [David McArdle]
