Plea for Grace

Plea for Grace May 6, 2022

Posted on: May 6, 2022

Psalm 6:1-10 ESV - 
1 O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath. 
2 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled. 
3 My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD--how long? 
4 Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love. 
5 For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise? 
6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. 
7 My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. 
8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. 
9 The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer. 
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.

Languish
  1. To be or become weak or feeble; lose strength or vigor.
  2. To exist or continue in miserable or disheartening conditions.
  3. To remain unattended or be neglected.

Lord, my feelings will lie, but You are always true. When my emotions are raw and I am exhausted I may feel abandoned, but You are here. I may feel punished, but Jesus took all my punishment. I may feel ignored, but You hear me and You answer according to Your word. What a blessing that You have given Your Word to counsel, to encourage, to strengthen, to restore, to help, to assure me of Your love and care. What a wondrous God!

Lord, help me to stand firm on the things I know to be true when I’m not feeling them. Your word is truth.

I want to know what you think!
