Psalm 6: When, Lord, When?
1 Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger
or discipline me in Your wrath.
2 Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, Lord, how long?
4 Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of Your unfailing love.
5 Among the dead no one proclaims Your Name.
For who [can] praise You from the grave?
King David was in agony. He weeped over sickness, troubles of mind and Spirit, as well as insults from his enemies. He pleaded for God to have mercy on him and, in desperation, cried out “How long, Lord, how long?”
No matter what is going on in your life today, no matter how long it seems to be taking, do as David did — cry out to God and trust Him for the outcome. He is the One Who can deliver you and, because of His unfailing love, He will.
Lord, thank you for your mercy and protection every day of our lives.
