Psalms 10:1 Yahveh, why are you standing so far away? Why are you hiding in hard times?
What an honest prayer! This believer does not doubt the existence of God or his power to intervene. He questions why God seems so far away when he needs him most. We are a few centuries away from the famous footprints saying. I don’t think the psalmist felt like he was being carried. He probably felt like he was being dragged — through nettles and barbed wire. He desperately tries to hang on to his faith when sight says he has been abandoned.
No answer here. I just want to pray for those of you who feel that way today. It’s a big club; we should order t-shirts.
Lord, make your presence known to those of us who feel alone in our troubles today.
