Today we meditate on Psalm chapter 10, verse 12. Arise, O Lord, O God, lift up your hand, forget not the afflicted.

I don’t know how long you’ve been on this journey of faith, but we don’t have to travel very far along this journey before we realise that things aren’t all perfect when we become Christians. We don’t necessarily have an easy life. My life certainly has not been easy the last few years.

And throughout the Psalms, we see many, many Psalms where the Psalmists are broken. They’re crying out in pain to God. And the Psalms really reflect the human experience in this fallen world.

And sometimes we forget that God wants to have a relationship with us. He wants us to talk to him. He wants to talk to us. He’s always speaking through his word and sometimes directly into our hearts and our spirits. And he wants us to call out to him.

Ultimately, it is God’s will that all affliction will be taken away. That we will be at peace everywhere. But for now, when we are in pain, when we are suffering, when we see others in pain and suffering, the thing to do is to call out to God and ask him to intervene.

We say, Lord God, lift up your hand, do something. Please don’t forget those who are suffering.

This is what we should do, and we will see God answer. He doesn’t always choose to take away the affliction, the suffering, in the way that we would want. But He is always, always with us. He is always there in the fire alongside.

Lord God, on behalf of my brothers and sisters who are suffering, I ask you to intervene, to comfort, to strengthen, to support, and where it is your will, to change those circumstances so that things are easier. Thank you God that you are always with us. You never forsake us. Amen.
