Bring It

Watching the NBA Finals, and thinking these are the strongest and swiftest we have to offer.  These are some of the best men in the world. Miami Heat. Dallas Mavericks. LeBron James. Dirk Nowitzki.

If these were the days of old, when men went out to war, these are the guys we would want on our side.  These guys give us a vision of strength, power, speed and agility. These are characteristics that are praised in men.

“I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.” (Psalm 6:6)

This is what the Dirk or LeBron of their day had to say. When everything was pressing in on him and he didn’t think he was going to make it. David was a mighty warrior. He had killed lions and bears and Israel’s enemies. He was strong and powerful. He was agile, because they could not catch him no matter how hard they tried.

My initial thought was, “Wow, David really? That is sounding kind of weak.” I mean can you picture LeBron or Dirk on the couch crying their eyes out. (Well LeBron might be after last nights game)

But if there is one person you are going to be intimate with, pour out your heart to him, it should be someone who can do something about it.

David got it. We need to get it. David was not afraid to be vulnerable.  He wasn’t sharing his problems with one of the jokers he hung out with.  He took his problems to the One who could deliver him (Psalm 6:4). He was assured that God would turn back all of his enemies and leave them ashamed and dismayed. (6:10)

Where do you take your problems? How are they doing with them?

There is a place you can go, but like David, you have to leave all the fake you at the door.
