Pour Out Your Heart
David writes this psalm after he had fled the revolt against his kingdom led by his son Absalom. Like so many of us, he did not have anyone to turn to for comfort, strength, and help except Jesus Christ. Throughout His Word, God tells us to cast our burdens at His feet because He wants to be our burden bearer (Psalm 55:22). King David acknowledges this, and in this psalms, he writes that God is his rock and refuge. He knew that he could trust in God to pour out his heart before Him because he needed God's direction and guidance in his life. Throughout our life, there may be burdens that others may not know about, and sometimes we may not want others to know about, but we are invited to pour those burdens out before God. God is our deliverer and strength, and we should trust in Him with our heart's burdens. He is our Friend that always wants to listen to us, help us, and deliver us. We should trust God enough with our life to allow Him to be our guide as He is our rock in defense and refuge in time of need. God is our Friend, who we can pour out all of our hearts before Him because we can trust that He will do right and be our Rock and Refuge.
In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Psalm 62:7-8 (KJV)
