Psalm 60:11  Give us aid against the foe, for human help is worthless. (CSB)

There are some problems we can solve ourselves. There are some problems only God can solve. Ask him for help when you are helpless. Trust him to respond justly and timely. 

This full psalm contains David’s recounting of his lead measures and the resulting failures. He explains God’s purpose and aligns his actions with that purpose. Experiencing failure, he asks, “What’s missing?” 

It appears David understands how his strategy and tactics, right as they are, are not enough. The right alignment must be matched with the right attunement. Alignment is most often a matter of well-directed thoughts. Attunement is a matter of a God-shaped heart. 

The right ends without the right means is wrong. 

Hearts and minds unhinged are capable of performing valiantly alone – to a point. Hearts and minds linked together perform better – to a point. Hearts and minds seeking God’s will God’s way in God’s timing for God’s glory — to help people see how good and loving he is — this is the point. 

God’s help is never utilitarian. 

God’s help focuses on what is right, just, fair, and compassionate for everyone involved. 

There is simply no use in asking God to help us win battles that do not bless. 

There is simply no need for fear when our hearts and minds are aligned and attuned with God’s. His Greater Yes is precisely calculated to bless all concerned. 

I will seek alignment and attunement with God’s purpose for everyone concerned. 

Our Father, help us not only to take the right lead actions, but to do so with the right concern for every soul. What is right, just, fair, and compassionate for everyone involved? This is what we seek knowing this is what you love. Amen.

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
