Psalm 6:3 My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
The poet was angry at whom – the Lord, himself or the wicked ones? If God was greatly angry
with the poet (Psalm 6:1), why wouldn’t the poet search his heart and confess? Why would he
turn the focus toward his enemies and the Lord? “Lord, act – be merciful to me, deliver me or
no one will praise You or remember You when he is dead (Psalm 6:2, 4, 5).” “Evil, get away from
me” (Psalm 6:8), was this referred to himself or the enemies?
Before the financial tsunami broke out, how many people in the field already knew their
superiors were doing something wrong in the eyes of the Lord though nothing was in breach of
the law? How would you react if you were in the field? Follow suit and conformed to the group?
Ignore the situation and remain silent? Rise up and fight against the wind, or grumble but do
nothing? Paul asked Christians not to conform to the world, but to be transformed by the
renewing of the mind that they would be able to test and approve what was the perfect will of
God (Romans 12:2). This will not be an easy practice when one is faced with trials. David
could be faced with evil desires to fight against Saul’s wickedness and attempts to kill him
with an eye for an eye. How many people have the clear-mindedness and strength to discern
Satan’s tricks and fight back with God’s Word like Jesus did after 40 days of trial in the
wilderness? Delight in God’s Word and meditate on it day and night. You have its power and
strength. It is the spiritual armor required to fight the struggle against the power of this
dark world (Ephesians 6:10). How many of us are practicing this?
Pray that we can discern what God’s way is and where power and strength come from.
Pray that God leads us to meditate on His Word day and night. Rest in Him and have faith
in Him only.
和神呢？神，你行动啊！可怜我，拯救我，因为在死地无人记念你， 在阴间有谁称谢你(6:2,4,5) 。 「作孽的人，
