Hasten, O God, to save me; O Lord, come quickly to help me. (Psalm 70:1)
How often have we heard or said these words? Come now Lord, save me now! Our urgency must, through our pleas, become the Father’s urgency. We bring God’s time into our infinitesimal lifespan rather than seeking to understand our life in the span of eternity. Shall we not trust Him to save us tomorrow rather than today?
Our impatience is linked to our view of God’s glory. We believe that were He to save us now it would be to His greater glory rather than waiting until tomorrow. Our view down the corridors of the future ends at the tip of our nose and sometimes, our trust ends there as well.
Yet I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay. (v5)
Grace and peace to you.
