12 Hear [shama`] my prayer [taphillah], O LORD [Yahovah], and give ear ['azan] unto my cry [shav`ah]; hold not thy peace [charash] at my tears [dim`ah]: for I am a stranger [ger] with thee, and a sojourner [towshab], as all my fathers ['ab] were. KJV-Interlinear
12 “Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry; hold not your peace at my tears! For I am a sojourner with you, a guest, like all my fathers. ESV
Often times, it takes great pressure or suffering, wherein our cries for help are so insufficient, that words can’t even describe. Even the deepest sorrows of the soul cannot find words of utterance.
But when the individual is fallen so low in their life, wherein their sorrows are no longer pretended, then God sees and hears the genuine difficulties that exist in the life.
Some people when they hit rock bottom, complain and criticize and blame.
Most people, who are normal people, will cry out to God for help, long before they hit rock bottom.
Among the many principles that we should learn, is that this world is not our permanent residence. We are mere travelers, strangers in this land we call earth. No one throughout all of human history, from Adam until now, and into the future, has had or ever will have, a permanent home in this world.
Our real home is heaven.
To attempt the establishment of a permanent home here is for the fool. Everything in this world is temporary at best. Investing in the temporary, while ignoring the permanent, is not very smart.
Bible doctrine is permanent. Bible doctrine builds up and constructs the essence of your life. Bible doctrine is eternal and remains with you forever and forever. Bible doctrine is the gold mine and infinite treasure that you should be pursuing with all of your heart and mind.
And yet most people, ignore the treasure, and pursue the dust and stubble of this world. How smart is that?
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
