Psalm 57:1 Be Merciful Unto Me, O God, Be Merciful Unto Me: For My Soul Trusteth In Thee: Yea, In The Shadow Of Thy Wings Will I Make My Refuge, Until These Calamities Be Overpast.
In a world impacted by pain, we are too often distrustful because where do we go to find an end to our pain? In God we can always trust, because He will never fail us, hurt us, or make our life more difficult. Christ Jesus is our refuge. In Christ hanging from the cross, we have someone who will take care of us in our hour of need. Look at the terrible irony. Look at the terrible irony of our seeking relief from our pain as Christ suffers the worst pain of all upon the cross. Yet Christ is merciful from His cross. From His cross our Lord pleaded with the Father to forgive those who were crucifying Him. In pain, we are to reach out and reach up to God. In pain, we plead for His mercy.
