In Psalms 4, David says
“God, you are my righteousness, my Champion Defender.
Answer me when I cry for help!
Whenever I was in distress, you enlarged me.
I’m being squeezed again — I need your kindness right away!
Grant me your grace, hear my prayer, and set me free!”
Can you relate to this phrase….”I’m being squeezed again”?
I’m in a Facebook group with dads from all over the world and it’s hard to believe how many posts and comments I see from guys who are under enormous amounts of stress, are tired all the time and just feel plain beaten down by life.
Here are just 2 of hundreds of examples I’ve seen in this group….
I hope the above posts don’t describe your life, but if they do I’m here to tell you there is hope.
The pressures of life can for sure sometimes feel overwhelming and even though the gentleman that made the 2nd post above doesn’t want to hear it, Jesus is the answer.
We can’t escape the pressures or the trials we go through, but because of Jesus being there with us, we can walk through it all victoriously!
The last verse of Psalms 4 says -
“Now, because of you, Lord, I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once, for no matter what happens, I will live unafraid!”
It’s because of Him that we can live unafraid.
