Psalm 44 Have you ever faced a time in your life when you could not put your finger on why you were suffering? We meet people who are suffering, and the reasons escape us. We wonder why, but there seem to be no answers. It seems that David was in that position in this psalm. He evidently was facing a difficulty that seemed questionable. He struggled to know the reason that his nation was in trouble. Note his words: “All this has happened to us, even though we have not rejected you or violated your covenant with us. We have not been unfaithful, nor have we disobeyed your commands.” (Ps 44:17-18)
Sometimes inexplicable things take place, and if that seems to be your dilemma, there is only one thing to do, which David did. He pleads in prayer: “Rise up and help us. Rescue us because of your loyal love.” (Ps 44:26)
Precious reader, when you are facing circumstances like David’s, run to the only place where you can find answers: at the feet of God.
