Trouble: PSA 69:17

Psalm 69:17  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 3
Hide not Thy face from Thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
This is an earnest request by David for help from God. He was in trouble, he knew it, and needed God’s help. The Lord is always by our side (even though we don’t see Him) and is ready to help if we ask for it. He helps us many times when we don’t ask for it because we don’t see the danger. But when we do call for help He’s there to provide it. When Peter walked on the water and started to sink he wasted no time in calling to the Lord for help. We shouldn’t either.
