Psalm 143 is a prayer of David; knowing that he is not perfect, he turns to God. David was on the run, hiding in a cave away from enemies. David’s desire and our own desire should be that our thoughts are dominated by the uplifting Spirit of God and not controlled by stress and worry. We should be driven by the things of God; ask for help and think of the possibilities.
In Psalm 144, David uses symbols of a rock, fortress, and shield to describe God. He explains that we should rely on God who has power to provide deliverance from deceitful enemies. Prayer is our greatest power. We can receive blessings throughout each hour as we pray. We can make hope become reality through our prayers. We can paint a colorful and detailed picture with God; let Him deliver his blessings from our visions of hope.
Inspired by reading and studying Psalm 143-144, I wrote a poem and have now included a piano piece into the three minute video below: Blessings Throughout Each Hour.
Tomorrow, I will continue the study into Psalm 145. May God bless you throughout each hour!
