What’s the Plan?

I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills [his purpose] for me. PSALM 57:2
So your life is filled with trouble. So you have problems. So you have enemies at work who pursue you with tongues as sharp as swords. So you can’t finish everything on deadline. So your boss is unreasonable. So your coworkers are incompetent. So … so … so.
So you cry out to God Most High.
What is it about crying out to God in times of trouble that makes us feel better about life? Or, if crying out to God isn’t providing much comfort, what’s the problem? Is He not there? Does He not care?
Part of the comfort can be found in the second part of Psalm 57:2, which tells a little about Who God is and why we cry out to Him in the first place.
Is it because He will solve our problems to our satisfaction? He might, but, then again, He might not. There is no guarantee in Scripture that God will give us what we want, only that He will give us what we need. That’s the character trait of God that David seems to find comfort in as he cries out—that He is the God Who promises to fulfill His purpose for David.
Isn’t that the same God you worship? Doesn’t He make you the same promise?
