God’s Fingerprints

God's fingerprintsPsalm 140 is a great reminder of why secure children of God desire to see Him touch their lives throughout their day.
David spent the first 11 verses talking about being under horrendous verbal and physical attacks, both of which led to mental anguish. In verse 12 he says, “I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted and will execute justice for the needy.” The word for “know” is not mere head knowledge or agreeing with a set of facts. David knew what he was talking about from experience. There was no doubt in David’s mind what his God could do for him. He had seen the fingerprints of God on his life in the midst of his painful challenges.
Thus David could write, “Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; the upright shall dwell in Your presence.” He saw his God touch his life before and knew his God could do it again. He knew that thankfulness kept him in the presence of his God where the good stuff of life is found.
Know this for yourself: Forget what your God has done to your own mental peril. Choose to never experience Him at all and expect to freak out when challenges – verbal, head noise, physical – come your way. Here’s a suggestion: Start looking for where your God touches your life throughout your day. It will help you be thankful and at peace no matter when you too are attacked.
