We cry out to the Lord “in truth”…

Standard

Psalm 145: 17 The LORD is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings. 18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desire of all who fear him; he also hears their cry, and saves them. 

I’m drawn especially to v.18 which says the Lord is near to all who call on him “in truth”. What does that mean? The Hebrew here suggests one who calls with all one’s heart, who calls and keeps calling. I also get the sense there’s a humility and awareness of one’s dependence on God. Calling on the Lord in truth is to recognize the truth of one’s dependence on the Lord. Finally it implies a confidence that the Lord hears us and will answer our call in time.

Heavenly Father hear the cries of your children this morning. Give us grace that we might call on you “in truth”. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
