Oh my goodness!! Have you ever felt like quitting? Come on at least once or twice right? 🙂
I find it amazing how God knows the situation, and if we will seek Him, He is faithful in showing up to help us through it.
A cry of distress in a sea of trouble. We may have to suffer severely for our devotion to God, but that should cause us to look forward with joy to the day when evil and injustice will be gone forever. 🙂
1 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
3 I am weary of my crying; my throat is dried; mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head; they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.
This is one of the most quoted Psalms in the New Testament, and it is often applied to the ministry and suffering of Jesus. Verse 4, like John 15:25, speaks of Jesus’ many enemies. The experience of being mocked by His brothers (69:8) is expressed in John 7:5.
David wept until he was physically exhausted, with a dry throat and blurred vision. He wept until he could weep no more, yet he still trusted God to save him. When devastated by death or tragedy, we need not collapse or despair because we can turn to God and ask Him to save us and help us. The tears will still come, but we will not be crying in vain.
FRUITFUL OBSERVATION: So many times in this life we will face difficulties. We must realize that the devil is not happy about our serving the Lord, and he will not stop quickly at trying to distract us from serving the ALL KNOWING AND ALL MIGHTY GOD. Remember if the devil can’t distract us, he will move on to someone close by who doesn’t have their Armour on for God, and without their realizing it, he gets inside of them and uses them against us in many ways.
Let’s remember that God is with us today and every day! All we have to do is seek Him AND SOMETIMES IT MAY TAKE MANY EARNEST PRAYERS ! 🙂
