14 day plan

Overcome

Day 1 of 14

Psalms 13:1-2

Psalm 13

A Plea for Deliverance

For the choir director. A psalm of David.

1How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?

How long will you hide your face from me?

2How long will I store up anxious concerns within me,

agony in my mind every day?

How long will my enemy dominate me?

Reflections: Have you ever felt like this? It’s not wrong to ask God questions like these – it’s not a lack of trust but rather the expression of a deep faith when someone can cry out to God asking him where he is. It takes courage to ask these questions, and the person asking expects an answer.

Questions:  Have you ever felt like God has forgotten or abandoned you? Did you cry out to God like the Psalmist?

Prayers:  How long will you hide your face from me O God? Answer my prayers, according to you great wisdom and grace. Amen
