Day 40 | Zak Calloway
A lot of my sentiment from Psalm 70 is reiterated in 71, but a few verses catch my eye:
“7 To many people, I am an example of how much you care.”
Throughout verses 9 – 18, David is asking God to stay present when he grows old and to never leave even when his strength wanes. It’s easy to correlate Gods presence with our ability and the extent of influence we have in the world, but I believe David is calling that idea into question. How arrogant of us to act like all that we can do and all we want our legacy to be is dependent solely on us!
We all work for so many things and to be known when our time is done, but too often we forget the part God plays in the monuments we make and the legacy we are weaving. What happens when we lean into God rather than ourselves?
