Mercy Me

Mercy Me

Mercy Me is a simple thought reflection from Psalm 6:1-10 about the way that God is very merciful to us as Christians, even when we are weak.

Psalm 6:1-10

I can understand how David felt. There have been times when I have felt so weak. When I’m weak, I think that God is going to be angry at me (Psalm 6:1).

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger; do not discipline me in your wrath.” (Psalm 6:1, CSB)

When I am weak, it affects me physically (Psalm 6:2-3).

Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak; heal me, Lord, for my bones are shaking; my whole being is shaken with terror. And you, Lord—how long?” (Psalm 6:2–3, CSB)

Even though I am weak, I can still trust God. He can rescue me because He is faithfully loving (Psalm 6:4).

Turn, Lord! Rescue me; save me because of your faithful love.” (Psalm 6:4, CSB)

Of course, like David, I sometimes think about death when I am weak (Psalm 6:5). I think about how death will affect me. This weakness I feel can make me so worn out (Psalm 6:6). I can feel overwhelmed with grief (Psalm 6:7).

 

It is at times like this that I don’t want to be around negative people (Psalm 6:8). In the end, I can trust more in God (Psalm 6:9) and less in other people (Psalm 6:10).

I trust that He will answer my prayer, even in times like these.
