Devotional - Friday, June 9, 2017 160/205

Today's Scripture: "But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with fasting; and my prayer would return to my own heart." Ps 35:13

See it.

Unrequited quiet

Live it.

More harm is done at the water cooler than can be addressed here. Anywhere things are discussed that no one wants to make public can be a water-cooler discussion. It's expected that what is said is juicy and the one spreading the manure will never be exposed. It doesn't require compelling evidence and any new facts, only conjecture based on what little you know about something that's not your business. More false information and rumors come by way the "water-cooler" than any compromised journalist.

So, what's a person to do when he wants to know something and no one is talking. Answer: Just let it go. If something is so burdensome you can't bear not discussing it, tell God and trust Him to let you know. David learned the secret. The book of Psalms is a journal in which David asked things only God knew and could answer. We, who hear his question might relate, but we are benefactors because we have the Answer Book.

Pray it.

Were it not for the fact You know everything, God, I would have no hope at all.
