I’m not sure if you’ve heard Bethels song “I Can Feel You” but it is really, really powerful. Even if you’ve heard it before, listen to it now.
Right after doing my Bible study last night, I was listening to that song and randomly flipped to Psalm 69. Verses 1-5 say this “Save me, O God! The water is already up to my neck! I am sinking in deep mud. There is nothing to stand on. I am in deep water. A flood is sweeping me away. I am exhausted from crying for help. My throat is hoarse. My eyes are strained from looking for my God. Those who hate me for no reason outnumber the hairs on my head. Those who want to destroy me are mighty. They have no reason to be my enemies. I am forced to pay back what I did not steal. O God, you know my stupidity, and the things of which I am guilty are not hidden from you.”
As all Psalms, this one is powerful. I don’t know where you are in life and how things are going! But I do know that sometimes it can feel like the wind and waves are the only things surrounding you. Just don’t loose heart because Psalm 69:16 also says “Answer me, O Lord, because Your mercy is good. Out of your unlimited compassion, turn to me.”
Remember that the Lord is good and His compasion is unlimited. The Lord listens. “Let the heavens and earth, the seas, and everything that moves in them praise Him.” (Psalm 69:34)
