988 & 84, 75%, 25% & 988

George Mueller wrote, “The Book of Psalms is filled with David’s prayers as he was in anguish of heart and soul.”

He went on —

David learned at a young age to go to the Lord in times of distress for no one else could give him comfort and no one else could relieve him from his distresses.

David says in Psalm 4:1: “Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.”

In Psalm 142:1, David says: “I cry out to the LORD with my voice; with my voice to the LORD I make my supplication. I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble.”

— In 1st Thessalonians 5:11 it says, “Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

In light of all this: “If we have learned anything in our country this past year, it’s that it is too easy to discourage and tear one another down.

The difficult thing to do
is to encourage and build one another up! It
takes a certain going against the grain to do this,
but it is the right thing to do and it is what will
point others to Jesus.

Make the decision today
to not be a part of divisive talk and action, but
rather to always seek to be the light of Jesus in
your day-to-day interactions and conversations. (, sourced 4.27.21)
