How to handle a crisis

ďI lie prostrate in the dust; give me life in accord with your word.Ē [Psalm 119.25 NASB]

As in the previous section, David was still unwell. This gives us both comfort and strength. How? It makes known to us that the saints of old had seasons of prolonged illnesses which were sometimes accompanied with depression. Yet, during these times their faith, love, and consistent godly living was continually manifested. Truly they are dead, ...but they, through their many and varied experiences, are still speaking to the tested, tried, and afflicted saints of today.

During this period of time, David felt that his spiritual vision and his inner life were gradually ebbing away as a result of his sickness and other weaknesses.

David was a man after Godís own heart and he had had numerous experiences of Godís saving, keeping, and delivering power. Where was Davidís faith resting? It was rooted in Godís word.

This is a good pattern for us to follow. We might not fall as low as David was, but when we are in a tight corner and facing tests on our faith - stretched to the limit - we will be uplifted when we receive a word from God, just like David was.

When the enemy seems to quietly whisper in our ear like he would to a man over a deep ravine whose resolve and strength was slowly slipping away, "how long can you hold on?" God's word will lift us up. When you feel that you have reached the end of your resources, and the enemy repeats again, slowly and with undue emphasis, "how long can you hold on?" God's word will restore us.

Do you feel like "Christian" (from the book, "Pilgrim's Progress") as he lay despairing in a dungeon of dust, realizing that no matter how hard you work the arm of flesh cannot help you?

God always turns His enemies malicious schemes back on their own heads. "Christian" got out of the prison through a word of promise and so will you.

The evil power that plotted to restrict, bind, and torture you is destined to receive more than he ever planned for you - unimaginable eternal punishments.

At the start of this verse David was lying in the dust and at the conclusion of this portion of Scripture he is running like a man with a new and enlarged heart.

His word of quickening and power will also do the same for you. [David McArdle]
