Psalm 6

One thing that we have learned about David from our time in the Psalms is that he often suffered. Quite often even those close to him became his enemies who yearned for his destruction and death. David does not tell us the exact circumstances he faces as he pens this poem. Whatever the cause, his despair is emotional, spiritual, and physical. His suffering makes him fear that God will join in and punish him further.

Yet, he knows that the answer is to appeal to God’s steadfast love. And he does. David the giant killer humbly reveals that he cries himself to sleep like a little baby. Yet, by the end of this poem, after he has had opportunity to pour out his heart, he is fully confident that God has heard the sound of his weeping, heard his pleas, and accepted his prayers. May you have this same assurance tonight.
