Last week I turned to Psalm 69 where I read words that I felt David had written straight from my heart. This is the way I have been feeling:
" Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths,
where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters;
the floods engulf me.
I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched. " (v1-3a)
This morning God turned my attention to the following:
"In my distress I called to the LORD;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears... (v6)
He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
he drew me out of deep waters. (v16)"
I am thankful for a living God who hears His children and answers them. I may not yet feel like I am out of the deep waters in some circumstance, but I know He has pulled me out of them eternally. That alone is comfort enough for today.
