Psalms 13:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.>> How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
I woke a bit early this morning, had my personal morning devotions as usual in my bedroom and decided that I'll venture downstairs to my home based business - KVK ENTERPRISES - www.kvklives.com to start work early. Why? When I woke, a Whatsapp message from a special friend in Nevis suggested that she wanted some help from me urgently with regards to completing a particular task. SOME PEOPLE YOU JUST HAVE TO SHIFT YOUR ENTIRE SCHEDULE FOR AND MOVE IMMEDIATELY TO HELP. In my life, there are just a SELECT FEW PEOPLE LIKE THAT. That's just their special privilege EVERY TIME.
When I made my way downstairs, I noticed something. I had forgotten to loose my dogs from their fenced in quarters last night as I left early to take my Dare 2 Be Different International - www.daretobedifferentskn.com Youth to a Christmas Programme in the Trinity Community, and so the dogs were just relaxed in their kennel still without fuss. I knew they were hungry!
I then said to myself. "Oh my, how could I have forgotten you? If anyone broke into my home or business last night, it would have been my entire fault? Why? I didn't loose them to do their job of TEARING UP INTRUDERS and guarding the yard." So yes, don't just walk into my yard when you're coming by me from anywhere around the world. I did give this PUBLIC WARNING EH. Contact me first! Don't suspect that they're tied and penned in!
We are all very, very, very, guilty of forgetting PEOPLE and ANIMALS at times. How sad! If GOD treated us like how we sometimes treat PEOPLE AND ANIMALS, what would really become of us? Honestly?
Sometimes when we forget PEOPLE, especially people who look forward to us REMEMBERING THEM, they get all discouraged and feel hopeless and depressed. That's a fact!
Men, let me give you a little advice about women, as YOU, like ME, continue to pray and seek God's approval on who we should tie the knot with. Women tend to love you even more when you REMEMBER very intricate details about them. Don't forget their birthday, anniversary, favorite colour, favourite food, favourite TV show. Each lady is different though. Therefore, you have to get to know the person you decided to LOVE inside out and NEVER FORGET THE KEY THINGS IN THEIR LIFE that matter most to them.
Sometimes, we also tend to feel that our GOD has forgotten us. Am I telling a lie? We all do at times. Nothing is wrong with that, King David did to. That is why he wrote Psalms 13:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.>> How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
From my study of this particular Psalm, permit me to infer that David was writing about a soul in affliction. A soul in distress and in earnest, earnest need of HELP FROM GOD.
Remember I do not know everything and I stand to be corrected or even challenged. Let's go on if you agree with me thus far. The psalmist seems tired of waiting. He seems tired of all the delay of his prayers for BETTER being answered. Therefore, he complains and complains. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
I am not totally sure, but can we possibly think that the psalmist was at the BRINK OF DEATH? We all have a BAD, BAD, VERY BAD habit of only DESPERATELY reaching out to GOD when things turn for the worst and we are at our LOWEST!
Further study of this particular verse suggests that David probably wrote that psalm during some type of captivity as when we read further on, the entire psalm contains the prayers and supplications of the distressed Israelites tired of being oppressed and under bondage.
Friend, in closing, are you currently at a point where you feel like King David's words were meant for you too? How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
Don't give up! Your answer is coming! From reading all of my writings, whether fictional, spiritual, political, comedy, I always let you know UPFRONT, that things are not the BEST with me either, but I choose to ALWAYS REMAIN POSITIVE AND OPTIMISTIC during this most TRYING TIME OF MY LIFE.
I am CONFIDENT, that as a CHILD OF GOD, that after my test, I'll have an even GREATER TESTIMONY and after I've been through the FIRE, I'll come forth as GOLD. When would that be? I honestly don't know, but DAILY, I continue to KEEP MY TRUST IN GOD AND FAITH IT OUT!
You should too! Don't give up! Hope is ahead!
God Won't Forget You! That's a Guarantee!
