S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 142:5

I cry to you, Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”


For whatever reason, King David once again felt hemmed in. In his dilemma, he cried to the Lord as his refuge in the land of the living.


Most likely, this was another Psalm of David written while in the Cave of Adullam. If that is actually where David was when he penned these words, it’s easy to see why he felt hemmed in. During this time, he was running for his life from a King who despised and loved him all at the same time. It wasn’t safe to journey outside of the cave during the day for fear an enemy would spot him. Yet the hope in this passage is seen when David acknowledged that there definitely were folks who were alive on the outside. Even though he was somewhat trapped in the cave, he knew that real freedom could only come when he was out of the cave and back with the masses of living people. That’s where he was at his best, with people. Maybe you’re in a cave-like feeling today. Maybe you need to get out where people are. That will require, “The CRY For LIFE” on your part.


Dear Jesus,

Help me out of this cave this AM I pray. I need to be with full of LIFE folks! It’s my “CRY For LIFE!” Amen
