Psalm 86:10-For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You are God alone.
This text is a prayer of David to God during a time in his life when he was desperate, in distress and in great need of God's help. It was this great need for God that drove David to prayer to the Father.
David knew that the Lord His God was a God who had performed and won many battles in the past on his behalf and He knew that He could go to Him again and find the help he needed again, knowing that God would hear and answer Him again.
Throughout scripture we are reminded that the Lord our God is a very present help in the time of trouble. Therefore, we must continually go before Him in prayer and make our request know unto Him by faith.
We are reminded in scripture that men ought to always pray and not faint. We are to pray not only when troubles comes, but when times are good also.
People of God, the Lord our God commands, expects, looks for and desires us to come to Him in prayer daily. We are commanded in Hebrews 4:16- Let us then come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
In His prayer to God for help, David makes a declaration that God (1) is Great, (2) He does wondrous things and (3) He alone is God.
David is showing us that even in the midst of desperate situations, we can not afford to loose our faith. Even though David is despeate, he still has faith to believe that God is still God alone, He is all powerful and that His God is able to fix his situation, therefore He cries out to Him in faith for help.
How about us? When we find ourselves in hard places, in situations that are beyond our control, in circumstances of life where it seems that the enemy has cornered us and we are unable to get out, do we too cry out to God in prayer, believing by faith that our God is God, He is a merciful and Mighty Warrior who does wondrous things and He will hear and answer us too in our time of trouble?
People of God, is your prayer to God one that acknowledges Him as God alone who is a Great and Mighty God who does wondrous things?
One thing about the troubles of life is the fact that they have a way of FORCING us to put our focus on God.
Having believed and having known from past experiences that God alone is God who does Great and wondrous things, David now ask God in vs#11-12 to Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart I will glorify your name forever.
Mighty Warrior indeed is our God!
People of God, open wide your mouth and lift up your heads in prayer to the Father. Declare His power and authority over every situation in your life for Great and Mighty is our God!
Psalm 24:7-8 Lift up your heads, O you gates!And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty,The Lord mighty in battle.

People of God, we serve a Great and Mighty God who is God alone . Our God who does wondrous works.
In a place of desperation or need on today? Call on the Lord your God who is Great and Mighty in power for He promises to hear and answer you and I for He alone is God. He alone is our strong tower, Mighty in battle.
Remember people of God, no matter how big the fight or great the battle, our God is a Mighty God and He never fails, He never lose, He always wins, He is Mighty and NOTHING is impossible with Him.
