He listen to my cry and give ear to my prayer.

Psalm 17A prayer of David.
1 Hear, O LORD, my righteous plea;
listen to my cry.
Give ear to my prayer—
it does not rise from deceitful lips.
2 May my vindication come from you;
may your eyes see what is right.
3 Though you probe my heart and examine me at night,
though you test me, you will find nothing;
I have resolved that my mouth will not sin.
4 As for the deeds of men—
by the word of your lips
I have kept myself
from the ways of the violent.
5 My steps have held to your paths;
my feet have not slipped.
6 I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show the wonder of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who assail me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.
10 They close up their callous hearts,
and their mouths speak with arrogance.
11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me,
with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
12 They are like a lion hungry for prey,
like a great lion crouching in cover.
13 Rise up, O LORD, confront them, bring them down;
rescue me from the wicked by your sword.
14 O LORD, by your hand save me from such men,
from men of this world whose reward is in this life.
You still the hunger of those you cherish;
their sons have plenty,
and they store up wealth for their children.
15 And I—in righteousness I will see your face;
when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.


Until now I can’t still move on from the retreat that we had in Benguet. I am still amaze by the beauty of his creation. The feeling is like I’m still have a hang over. I was so drunk in the presence of the Lord. He showed me how faithful he is to me. He showed me and assured me that He is the God of promises and the God who fulfill it. Just like the prayer of David, He said in verse 8 “Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings”. Becuase of his love and faithfulness to me he always makes me feel that I am the apple of his eye. Everytime that I face trouble and traggles I am not affraid because I know that his always beside me and He is in me. He is my confidence and my stronghold. I know that I am safe as long as he is with me.
