Why, O Lord, do you stand far away?

Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? [Psalm10:1]

Ever felt like that with God. You know, those moments when you stand almost exasperated at God wondering what He is up to because there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of Him doing anything.

According to the writer of Psalm we mustn’t allow arrogance, schemes, greed or pride to influence are thoughts that God is not there, that He does not exist.

Instead we must trust that He does not forget, that He will call to account, that He does see, that He will help, that He is king and that He does hear.

Maybe we need to be better at telling ourselves to be quiet, stop moaning at Gods apparent disappearance from our lives and just trust that He is on the throne, He knows what He is doing and allow Him move in the way that He needs to.
