“Hurry up, God!” Everything about Psalm 70 communicates haste. It is a short psalm, filled with imperatives. At first glance, it seems offensive or irreverent to approach God in this way. After all, we would only speak like this to good friends, to people who know us well. But that’s the point – God is holy, exalted above the heavens, but in His kindness, He offers us His friendship. David understands that he himself is poor and needy, and that God is the one who saves, and so he approaches God reverently but desperately. As we come to worship today, may our hearts be filled with this desperate reverence as we call upon God, our help and deliverer.
