Sometimes we say that God forgot us, but it is not like that, because God is closer than we think. He does not leave us alone, He is always there to help us.
Remember something very important, there will come times when we will have trials proofs, and these trials will produce in our hearts afflictions where we will say where are you God?
How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
These things happen, this expression of David, was because he was distressed at that moment, and that is why he expressed himself in this way. He asked the Lord, that, if He was going to abandon him, but let’s not forget something important, God acts under His sovereign will and does it for a purpose.
We only should ask to Him, even if those moments of despair come, those moments are really difficult, we get tired saying “God, you forgot me, come to my help because I am very distressed”.
Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
These are more of the words we use when we are afflicted: “answer me, do not forsake me, do not turn away from me your face Lord, I need you, I can not anymore”. Do you believe that God is far from you? Do you think He does not help you? God never leaves you alone, nor forsakes you, but is closer to what you believe and arrives at the moment you least expect.
If God were not by your side, would you be alive? He is the one who protects you, the one who takes you out of anguish, restores you and overcomes all the obstacles in the middle of your path. Trust in God, cry out to Him and do not be dismayed because He is with you in the midst of your cry.
