Thought for Friday 1st July

Psalm 138:3

“When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.”

Now the psalmist tells us what has prompted his gratitude to God. The verse is sometimes translated “On the day that I called,” but the Hebrew means something more like “whenever” or even “each time.” Not only is God responsive; he is also reliable.

Reflection: Notice that what changed here was not the situation, the enemy or the problem. No, it was David’s heart: he was emboldened and made braver. Sometimes, if we are wiser, we are the answer to our own problems.
