Psalms today shows us how dependent we are on God, when we are in dark seasons of our lives, we truly cry out for Him. It is when we are at our lowest, we suddenly find that time to pray, in the face of all the good times we had in life, when we didn’t pray to God.
David here is going through some bad times again, and his words today demonstrate his total reliance on God:
Psa 13:1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David. How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?
David is saying, I am going through some really dark days, please don’t forget about me, I am helpless, I cannot do this on my own, Lord please remember me.
In the creature comforts of our every day lives, it is easy to forget how dependent we are on God. High speed internet, food in kitchen, money in our wallets, and we think we have got it made. We woefully forget how much we need God. Only when bad times strike do we suddenly find our prayer life being what it ought to be.
Today’s Psalms should be a reminder to not just cry out to God when we need Him during bad times, but to remember that both the good days and the bad days come from God, and to always be in communion with Him through prayer, not just when someone is sick, or bad things start happening, but in the good seasons of our lives too.
