I am Yours—save me!
"I am Yours—save me!" Psalm 119:94
This is not the cry of a sinner just awakened to a sense of his danger, and seeking deliverance from the wrath to come. It is the prayer of one who realizes that he is the Lord's, "I am Yours" he says, "save me!"
Probably the psalmist uttered this cry in the view of some external peril; for in the next verse he says, "The wicked have waited for me to destroy me."
This prayer of the psalmist will often suit the believer well —as when the fowler is spreading some net to entangle him.
Or when, in the business of life, he is much in the midst of worldly or ungodly men.
Or when he is assailed by fierce temptations.
Or when his inward corruptions gain strength, and threaten to prevail over him.
Because, O Lord, I am Yours—because You ransomed one—redeemed by the precious blood of Christ, and adopted by Your grace—I trustfully look to You! O save me from the power of all my spiritual enemies, and uphold and preserve me to the end. "I am Yours—save me!"
"Yours in sickness, Yours in health,
Yours in poverty, Yours in wealth;
Yours, Whate'er my lot may be,
Yours throughout eternity.
"Your forever! Oh how blessed
'Tis to find in You my rest!
Savior, Guardian, heavenly Friend,
Oh, defend me to the end!"
Back to Every Day!
