Today's Good News


4/5 Psalm 22:1-11
For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be sung to the tune “Doe of the Dawn.” My God, my God! Why have you forsaken me? Why do you remain so distant? Why do you ignore my cries for help? 2 Every day I call to you, my God, but you do not answer. Every night you hear my voice, but I find no relief. 3 Yet you are holy. The praises of Israel surround your throne. 4 Our ancestors trusted in you, and you rescued them. 5 You heard their cries for help and saved them. They put their trust in you and were never disappointed. 6 But I am a worm and not a man. I am scorned and despised by all! 7 Everyone who sees me mocks me. They sneer and shake their heads, saying, 8 “Is this the one who relies on the LORD? Then let the LORD save him! If the LORD loves him so much, let the LORD rescue him!” 9 Yet you brought me safely from my mother’s womb and led me to trust you when I was a nursing infant. 10 I was thrust upon you at my birth. You have been my God from the moment I was born. 11 Do not stay so far from me, for trouble is near, and no one else can help me.
We trust God based on His Word. We begin with confidence and yet the world is a scary place. We struggle but we believe. His Word effectively speaks to our situation. His deliverance is forthcoming. We remember. Now we hear His promise and have experienced His promise. We struggle and we believe.
