150 Days of Psalms: Psalm 22


You can read Psalm 22 here.

How often do you feel abandoned by God?  David felt this way here.  I have felt this way in my life.  Why has He forgotten us?  Why has he turned from us?

When we have hardships and are still searching for God you can hear the world mocking you.  Why are you trusting God?  What's he done for you lately?

But you know what?  These people just don't get it.  They don't see what it means to love God and be loved by God.  We are set apart.  We belong to him.  Knowing where you belong can make it all worth it.

There were so many times in David's life where things were hard.  I would venture to say that times were more hard than easy for David.  But God was there.  Always.  David was a man after God's heart.  God loved him and took care of him.  It might not have seemed that way sometimes but I think God back off just a bit to help strengthen us along the way.
