The Deep Waters

in God Pain/Suffering

Where is God when life becomes overwhelming? This is the Bible Minute.

Ever feel like you were about to be swallowed in an ocean of pain? Engulfed by grief of loss? Your cries for help go unanswered, and you can't find God on the shore?

David, a man after God's own heart, could relate. He says in Psalm 69, "Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.... I am in pain and distress; may your salvation, O God, protect me. I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.... The LORD hears the needy and does not despise his captive people." (Psalm 69:1,29-30, 33)

So where is God in our distress? He's not on the shore, He is right there with you in the "deep waters" of your shaken world. He's never going to leave you. He's never going to forsake you.
