Psalm 6: When All is Lost, Cry Out To God.

As I read Psalm 6 today, I almost started to cry. I’m in tears because I understand what David is writing about. I’m in that place and don’t see a way out.

When you’re crying out to God, depression sets in. It gets tough to envision God coming to your aid.

In fact, I’ve learned it’s easier to get angry and yell at him. My life has been this way for years, and I can’t see a way out.

However, I’m going to believe that he is coming. Just like Psalm 121, I have to believe he is coming, he is my deliverer and I will see him soon.

Psalm 6

You can believe this too If you know and understand the character of God. You’ll know that he loves and cares for you. It’s why he sent Jesus to die for you, and it’s why he’s coming to act on your behalf.

I’m a mess, but Jesus knows that, and that’s why he’s coming to rescue me. In my life, I’ve spent many sleepless nights, and many of these nights have been spent swearing to the heavens.

I’ve demanded that God show himself, and explain himself. But every time my pain has fallen on deaf ears. Instead of walking away from him, I’ve always pressed in. And he always shows me peace and understanding.

It doesn’t mean I know what is going on, but I do understand that he is with me.

Psalm 6 For the choir director: A psalm of David:

O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger
    or discipline me in your rage.
Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak.
    Heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
I am sick at heart.
    How long, O Lord, until you restore me?

Return, O Lord, and rescue me.
    Save me because of your unfailing love.
For the dead do not remember you.
    Who can praise you from the grave?

I am worn out from sobbing.
    All night I flood my bed with weeping,
    drenching it with my tears.
My vision is blurred by grief;
    my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.

Go away, all you who do evil,
    for the Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my plea;
    the Lord will answer my prayer.
10 May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified.
    May they suddenly turn back in shame.

Psalm 6:1-10

Psalm 6: Commentary:

The first 7 verses of Psalm 6 speak to me and remind me of my life. The last few years have been rough for me, and I can’t see where my relief is coming from.

However, I do believe that he’s coming to rescue me. God is on his way.

King David was a Godly man who was said to be a man after God’s own heart. However, he did commit some sins while he lived on this earth.

What does that tell us?

How To Stop Worrying

It tells us he was human, and if we sin we haven’t lost hope. In fact, I believe how we react to our sins shows God our maturity.

David’s reaction to his sin, when confronted by it, was one of remorse. He wrote a beautiful Psalm asking God to forgive him, and he begged God to make him clean and holy once more.

Have we ever cried over our sins? Does the evil we’ve committed ever make us feel sick about our former lives? I’m not saying we should dwell on it, but if we love God we shouldn’t sin.

Hurting God should be first in our worries, and if we aren’t worried, where are our priorities in life?

Recently I’ve been convicted for this very issue. My priorities haven’t been in the right place, and my attitude has sucked.

In fact, I think my attitude is the major thing God wants to change in my life. If you’re in trials and tribulations, ask yourself one question.

What is God trying to teach me through this? Because most likely God is trying to say something to you, he wants something to change.

I’m not sure what time of Davids’s life this was written in, but Psalm 6 was written during a massive time of turmoil in his life. How often do you cry yourself to sleep?

Psalm 6: Meaning

The meaning of Psalm 6 is to hold on. Keep clinging to Christ, and even though he wasn’t in the picture yet, you can still hold onto God.

He is the one who will right the wrongs, and he is the one who sets all records straight. God is the righteous judge and his timing is perfect. Don’t let yourself fall into judgment, and judge yourself before that.

God loves you, and even if you feel deserted he’s on the way, and when finally comes you’ll see a transformation in your life that you’d never believe.
