Psalm 31 was written by King David at a time of distress in his life. He felt trapped (v4) ….. filled with grief (v9) ….. weak and afflicted (v10) ….. hated and abandoned by his loved ones (v11-13) ….. and worst of all ….. forgotten by God! (V22)
‘In my alarm I said,
“I am cut off from your sight!”
There are times in life when we feel like the heavens are made of brass and no one is listening.
But He goes on to say:
‘Yet you heard my cry for mercy
when I called to you for help.’
God is there even when you can’t feel His presence or hear His voice.
In David’s final words:
‘Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.’
