Let’s meditate on Psalm 22 verse 19. But you, O Lord, do not be far off. O you, my help, come quickly to my aid.

This Psalm is quite profound for me right now. As I record this, I have a very, very poorly son who is not expected to live for very many more days, and we need God to come to our aid. We are not particularly expecting, though we know that God can work a miracle, we are not particularly expecting full healing in this life.

We know that my son Morgan will be fully healed in the next. But what we also know is that we, the whole family, we need God to come to our aid. And when you look at the Psalms, time and time again the Psalmist is saying, God, I need you. God, things are bad.

And it is okay for us to say that. It is okay for us to say, God, I don’t know if I can cope with this. Please don’t be far off, God. We need you.

But we know that prayers like this are answered! That God loves to walk with his children through their trials.

He allows these trials in our lives. Some of these trials come about because of our sin, because of the human race’s sin. Not that God is getting at us, but because we live in a fallen world and God wants to minister to us through the trials.

He doesn’t want us to be alone in these times. Oh, my help, God, come quickly to my aid. If you are feeling that you are in a trial, pray this, call out to God and know that He is with you. He is with me and my family. May God bless you in whatever you are facing.
