Verse 1 – I cry out to the Lord with my voice; with my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
Verse 2 – I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble.
Verse 3 – When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk they have secretly set a snare for me.
Verse 4 – Look on my right hand and see, for there is no one who acknowledges me; refuse has failed me; no one cares for my soul.
Have you ever felt so alone that if you died, no one would notice? David felt this way, but he always cried out to the Lord and told Him how he felt. However, if we read David’s history, he always relied on God to pull him out.
Sometimes we go through troubles alone, but if you’re a child of the most High, you are never alone.
Verse 5 – I cried out to You, O Lord; I said, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.
Verse 6 – Attend to my cry, for I am brought very low; deliver me from my persecutors, for they are stronger than I.
verse 7 – Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Your name; the righteous shall surround me, for You shall deal bountifully with me.”
We can use David’s life as an example in so many ways. Here he was this fierce warrior; had been fighting for Israel with God on His side; he also wrote some of the most beautiful psalms to God; but yet he was being hunted by Saul simply because Saul was jealous of him.
We too, can be on the road to success and all of a sudden someone or something comes against us out of nowhere. We are to never feel helpless because God is always on our side and David knew this too.
