Turning

Psalms 38:21-22 (NIV) 21 Lord, do not forsake me;
do not be far from me, my God.
22 Come quickly to help me,
my Lord and my Savior.

David was very affected by his circumstances to the point of only seeing the rejection and the impending doom. His sins clouded his ability to even see the great things that were promised him and his destiny. For him to escape this great place of depression and fear, there had to be a turning. To only sing the song of despair only allows for remaining in the place of the song’s inspiration. There had to be a turning, and one that had become the pattern for him. Though he couldn’t even think or gather motivation for anything else, he simply turned to his God and cried out for help, for salvation. 

It’s amazing how sometimes this is really all God is looking for from us. Not a powerful look of faith or a strong resistance out of a confident and bold stance when that isn’t where you’re really at. But, rather a simple humble turning to God as if He alone carries the ability to save and deliver from the attacks, both on the outside and the inside.
