Come quickly, LORD, and answer me, for my depression deepens.
Don’t turn away from me, or I will die.
Psalms 143:7 (NLT)
How I thank God for David’s honesty. When I went through a dark season in my life, the Psalms were an oasis for my soul.
I would come to today’s verse and feel a deep assurance that God knew exactly how I felt. Why? Because He understood David’s plea. David cried out to God in his depression and requested, “Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.” It was this deep trust in God that led him to the assurance that he would be delivered. David finishes the Psalm by writing, “May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. For the glory of your name, O LORD, preserve my life. Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.” Today, come to God with your deepest concerns, with your heavy heart, and walk away like David with the full assurance that God has heard your cries and will lead you forward.
Dear Father, I come to You today knowing that You hear my concerns, that You care for me, and I can trust You. Thank You for Your love.
