Cave Dwelling

March 21st, 2011


Psalm 142

Do you wish you had a cave where you could indefinitely hide, like the psalmist David? If God kept a complaint box, what concern would you put in it? Perhaps you have had gut-wrenching times of prayer before God. David had been there. I have been there. He was overwhelmed. His spirit grew faint. Have you felt as if you were suffocating with disappointment? David was free to express his true feelings. God already knew his thoughts. Expressing them was liberating.

If you are going to complain, tell God; don’t blog about it on the Internet. God is a loyal friend and confidant–technology is not. God will not remember complaints against you, but technology will regurgitate them indefinitely. Sometimes in our desperation, we exaggerate circumstances in our own mind. Thank God, he knows the end of the story. He is concerned for you. He cares about you.

    I like this. It is much better to confide in God who will not leave your ranting where everyone can read it forever. Technology betrays us in the end.
