A Marvel to Many

Psalms 71:7-13 :

I am a marvel to many,
but you are my strong refuge.
My mouth shall be filled with your praise,
with your honor all day long.
Don’t reject me in my old age.
Don’t forsake me when my strength fails.
For my enemies talk about me.
Those who watch for my soul conspire together,
saying, “God has forsaken him.
Pursue and take him, for no one will rescue him.”
God, don’t be far from me.
My God, hurry to help me.
Let my accusers be disappointed and consumed.
Let them be covered with disgrace and scorn who want to harm me.

One of the things that happens to people who suffer while trusting in God for their salvation, is that others take notice. I think that the most amazing stories that I have ever heard, follow the lives of those who trust in God. When we go through troubles, it's good to know that it is quite possible that God will use us as examples of faith in His salvation. That is probably one of the reasons that we go through trouble in the first place.

David also asks God to not forget him in his old age. Seniors need salvation too. In fact, they probably need it more from a physical stand point than others. It is so comforting to have David's request for help during old age written here in this song. Old people become more vulnerable to harm. As David implies here, it is easier for their enemies to take advantage of their weakness. David also demonstrates to those who are young, that a life of trust in God will help you continue to trust God when you need Him in your old age. Habits are very serious things. They usually don't seem like much when you do them from day to day, but in the end it can have a very powerful effect on your life, both for good and for bad. Practicing trust in God for His salvation and then praising Him for it, may very well be the most important habit to learn in this life. Those who practice doing harm to those who trust in God, will have a bitter end if the refuse to turn from it.
