My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far away when I groan for help? Every day I call to you, my God, but you do not answer. Every night you hear my voice, but I find no relief. Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. Save me from the sword; spare my precious life from these dogs. Snatch me from the lion’s jaws and from the horns of these wild oxen. I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters. I will praise you among your assembled people. Praise the Lord, all you who fear him! Honor him, all you descendants of Jacob! Show him reverence, all you descendants of Israel! For he has not ignored or belittled the suffering of the needy. He has not turned his back on them, but has listened to their cries for help. (Psalms 22:1-3, 20-24 NLT)
Will our cries ever be answered?
When we’re in the bottom of a pit with no where to go, trapped in despair, where do we go? Who will help us?
David wrote in the 22nd Psalm about his struggles. How his enemies surrounded him, about the trials he faced. Yet he relied on The Lord for strength. He rested on The Lord for his protection and safety.
God will not turn His back on us. God will help us through the tough times.
Because of His deep love for His children.
God sent His Son for us. His Son, Jesus, who went to the cross for our pain. His Son, Jesus who rose again on Easter morning to show even death has no hold on us, for if we believe, God has prepared an eternal kingdom for us.
