QT – Psalm 142

Vs. 1, “I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.” Have you ever felt alone? Than this psalm of lament that David wrote is for you. This is considered one of David’s cave psalm’s as he wrote this when he was hiding out and on the run. Though David was in despair, by writing out his thoughts…notice how his emotion goes from down to up.

Regarding application…We are not Strong Enough. Vs. 6, ” Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.” No matter how strong we try to get…both physically, mentally, spiritually…we will never be strong enough. There will always be someone who can beat us. That is why we need to put our dependence upon the Lord. Only when we are weak is He able to be stronger in our lives. Remember the song, Stronger…”You are stronger, sin is broken You have saved me.”
