Psalm 143 – Desperate 

Time is running out, the opposition are pressing in, they will get there any moment, you need help and you need it desperately. 

That is this Psalm. The thing is even in the state desperation, the Psalmist doesn’t go looking elsewhere for the help. He throws himself at the mercy of God. Pleading for Him to come through and leaving no room for doubt that when the victory comes through, only one will get the glory and only one will continue to receive his wholehearted allegiance. 

This is a good way of seeing just how much God means to us when we are challenged with desperate times. Do desperate measures leave us crying out to God all the more? 

For His Name’s Sake 


C. L. J. Dryden
