Trials and Tribulations

DoveWhen products are stress tested, they do this to determine the breaking point and safe operating margins  etc. Likewise with us. It really does feel like we are squeezed at times. Psalm 55 is beautiful - beginning with David wishing to flee like a dove, to fly far away from everything. Towards the end of the Psalm, however, he says to 'cast your burden on Yahweh'.
"Give ear to my prayer, O God; And hide not thyself from my supplication. Attend unto me, and answer me: I am restless in my complaint, and moan, Because of the voice of the enemy, Because of the oppression of the wicked; For they cast iniquity upon me, And in anger they persecute me. My heart is sore pained within me: And the terrors of death are fallen upon me. Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, And horror hath overwhelmed me. And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then would I fly away, and be at rest. Lo, then would I wander far off, I would lodge in the wilderness. Selah" verses 1-7 As for me, I will call upon God; And Yahweh will save me. Evening, and morning, and at noonday, will I complain, and moan; And he will hear my voice. He hath redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me; For they were many that strove with me. God will hear, and answer them, Even he that abideth of old, Selah... Cast thy burden upon Yahweh, and he will sustain thee: He will never suffer the righteous to be moved. verses 16-19,22
