Trust in the divine guidance and comfort. 

Historical commentary. – Psalm 94 is a didactic poem that expresses a community appeal for suffering caused by tyranny. The author speaks wisely and organizes his poem in two sections: 1) Condemnation of tyrants (verses 1-11), and 2) Consolation of the oppressed (vv. 12-23). The psalmist calls upon its loyal community to stay strong, for God is in control. Finally, he addresses the faithful to be comforted with the reality that God is their defender against evil.

Trust in divine help. – The text says that “we are just slipping, and God comes to our aid.” “The Lord says: ‘Call upon me in the day of trouble’. He invites us to present what we are perplexed with and what we need. He bids us be constant in prayer. Our prayers are evidence of our strong confidence in God. The sense of our need leads us to pray fervently, and our heavenly Father is moved by our prayers. COL 136.

Trusting in divine consolation. – Certain events cause us pain, distress and suffering: marital separations, deaths of loved ones, diagnosed terminal illness, loneliness, etc.. In any case, God invites us to accept His consolation: “The periods of trouble and anguish, often become more distressing and disturbing than it should be, because it is our custom to give ourselves unreservedly to pain … By the grace of Christ we can act with composure and even with joy when we are subjected to the tests. ” 2SM 305.

We ask you to help us accept your will on those that do not understand your power and love. Lord, allows us to accept your consolation, peace, security and confidence in your designs. In the name of Jesus, amen.
