Does God forget us?
Read Psalm 22: 1-31.
“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken Me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them." Psalm 22: 1-4.
Even as David prayed and wondered why it was that it seemed that God had forsaken him in his times of great distress, we sometimes pose the same question.
This prayer of David was a forerunner of the prayer of Christ when he was hanging on the cross. In his humanity he cried out: "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?".
When we are in pain or troubles, and it seems that no help comes, does it not seem that God has forsaken us? In these times of darkness and desperation we must keep trusting and believing God and we shall be delivered.
God delivered David from the hand of Saul and made him a great king, and God delivered his own son, the Lord Jesus Christ from the power of the grave, and gave him power over death for all of us. So, even in darkness we must keep our faith in the promises of God and continue to live in the light of his word, and be assured that we will be delivered.
