A reflection from the Psalms-Psalm 69

Drowning in Misery

17 # Short Commentary and Lesson from Psalm 69.1-3, 13-17

You’ve lost your job, the car needs to be rapaired, the kids have been fighting again, and your “friends” have deserted you.

Your feet feel like they are planted in thick mud and the river is quickly rising to your chin. Your voice is hoarse and your eyes are swollen from your tears. Where is God when you need him?

Don’t be afraid, for despite your overwhelming circumstances, God can be trusted (vv. 30-36), The day will soon come when you can “tell the heavens and earth to start singing! Tell the mountains and every tree in the forest to join in the song! The Lord has rescued his people; now they will worship him” (Isaiah 44.23)
