Why O LORD?
Today’s Reading: Psalm 10 (SOAP: Psalm 10:1)
Where are You God?
Have you ever been going through a time of suffering or some kind of trouble and felt like God was no where to be found? You tried to pray but felt like He wasn’t listening or you waited for Him to show up or answer but it was like He didn’t even know you were in trouble? If we’re honest most of us have felt this at one time or another, and it’s exactly how David was feeling when he wrote Psalm 10.
So What Do We Do?
We may feel like David, we may even pray like David but the bottom line is – we trust. Like Asaph in Psalm 77, we resolve and choose to remember the faithfulness of God in times past and specifically, in this situation, the promise of God to never leave or forsake His children.
Father, sometimes You have seemed “far off” or as though You’re paying no attention – when these times come God, when I can’t see Your hand please help me to remember your promises and to trust Your heart.
