You are my God
In the wilderness of Judah, when he had nothing to support him, David sang Psalm 63. And, in that time of extreme desperation, the very first line he had to utter is:
O God, You are my God. – Psalm 63:1 (MKJV)
Dear friend, today, in this time of desperation, what words are coming out of your mouth? There is no God. Probably there is a God, but He is not a loving God. He is God who enjoys hurting us. He is a despotic ruler, a martinet who has a magnifying glass to magnify the small mistakes we do in our life. Oh, God has forgotten me. He has left me. He has forsaken me. Oh, the devil has more power than God. These are some of the words I have heard from good Christians during their time in wilderness.
David was the son-in-law of the king. He was the general of the army. He was anointed by the LORD to be the next king. But one day, he was pursued by his own father-in-law. He had to flee in such a hurry, that the general did not even have time to take his sword with him. And in the wilderness, with no water and food, we would have probably even questioned the anointing he had received. But not David. With more conviction, he says, “O God, You are my God.”
Today, probably you are in the same situation. You are being persecuted by the same people you have helped. Your own family does not understand your suffering. Dear friend, God has called you for greater things, but here you are, you have lost even what you had before… and wondering if that calling you received was true… that promise God gave you, is that for real… will the LORD forsake you, will you be forgotten as a failure.
My friend, there are no words to comfort you for what you are undergoing. But, all I can say is, look up to the Heavens and tell our LORD just what David said in the same situation:
O God, You are my God.
May the LORD of David be with you today and comfort you with His grace. Amen.
