Languishing Like a Saint

Too often David’s emotional extremes like those we see in Psalm 6 seem nothing like our Christian lives. We don’t come to God afraid of His anger and wrath. We don’t come weeping and greatly troubled. We are afraid to feel deeply in front of God; ashamed to be as vulnerable as David is. But David’s vulnerability is rooted in a deep trust of God. David knows that God will not despise his heartfelt prayer, will deliver him from his fears, and reassure him with His love. David risks much, and receives a great reward. So as you come to worship today, don’t hide your heart from God, but trust that God hears your plea, and accepts your prayer.
