Psalm 57:7-10
7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident! I will sing and make melody. 8Awake, my glory (my inner self); awake, harp and lyre! I will awake right early [I will awaken the dawn]! 9I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. 10For Your mercy and loving-kindness are great, reaching to the heavens, and Your truth and faithfulness to the clouds.

Psalm 61:2
2From the end of the earth will I cry to You [God], when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [a rock that is too high for me to reach on my own strength].

Psalm 62:5-8
5My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him. 6He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved. 7With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God! 8Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Psalm 73:25-26
25Whom have I in heaven but You [God]? And I have no delight or desire on earth besides You. 26My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the Rock and firm Strength of my heart and my Portion forever.

Psalm 59:10
10 My God in His mercy and steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look [triumphantly] on my enemies (those who lie in wait for me).

You have a distinct advantage over the men who wrote the psalms. They knew God more as all-powerful King, and many of their writings demonstrate they knew they would only be rescued if they had help from the powerful King.

Few knew that God called Himself their Father.

If you’ve visited this page very many times, the truth of God’s Fatherly Heart toward you has been stated in many different ways.

Why not take an inventory of your own heart right now? Can you say the same thing as the psalmist who wrote Psalm 73:25-26?

If you cannot, your Father God appreciates your honesty, and He wants to remind you that Psalm 59:10 is true for you: “He will meet you” where you are at.

You don’t have to strive to reach Him. He will come to you and meet you.

After all, that’s what Fathers do.

A little boy was helping his father move some books out of an attic into more spacious quarters downstairs. It was important to this little boy that he was helping his dad, even though he was probably getting in the way and slowing things down more than he was actually assisting.

But that boy had a wise and patient father who knew it was more important to work at a task with his young son than it was to move a pile of books efficiently.

Among this man’s books, however, were some rather large study books, and it was a chore for the boy to get them down the stairs.

As a matter of fact, on one particular trip, the boy dropped his pile of books several times.

Finally, he sat down on the stairs and wept in frustration. He wasn’t doing any good at all. He wasn’t strong enough to carry the big books down the narrow stairway.

Without a word, the father picked up the dropped load of books, put them into the boy’s arms, and scooped up both the boy and the books into his arms and carried them down the stairs.

And so they continued for load after load, both enjoying each other’s company very much ― the boy carrying the books, the father carrying the boy.

Isaiah 65:24 24And it shall be that before they call I [God] will answer; and while they are yet speaking I will hear.
