“I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.” Psalm 69:8
It’ll seem like God has forsaken you. You’ll be surrounded with fear, reproaches, dishonour, and adversaries all about you adding more to your misery or trouble.
You look for help but no one is there to help; Psalm 69:20 says, “I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.” And verse 8 says, “I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.”
One thing you should know about enemies; sometimes they know when you’re smitten of God, or forsaken. Psalm 69:26 says, “For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten, and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.”
Also know where your troubles are coming from. If it’s to do with your soul then seek God; cry aloud, spare not! In verse 1 David cried; “Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.”
When you’re weary of crying, and your throat is dried, your eyes fail; and nothing seems to be changing – an introspection will probably be valuable – examine yourself, whether you’ll be in the faith!
Wait for my God.
However, this is what you should be doing when you wait for God; spend most of your time in prayer, read your bible. Let God know your state, your misery, your need, etc – that you’re poor and sorrowful in spirit, and beg him to set you on high. Never stop to hope.
Praise his name also with a song. And in all humility continue to seek his face. One thing about God; “the Lord heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.” Psalm 69:33
Yes, you heard me right – his prisoners! But hear this promise also in Psalm 69:36, “The seed also of his servants shall inherit it [Zion], and they that love his name shall dwell therein.”
