How Long Lord?

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 6:3

My soul is in deep anguish. How long, Lord, how long?


I won’t speculate on what had brought King David such grief, but here we see him asking the Lord, “How Long Lord?”


We know that King David had hundreds of thousands of men in his army. He was the absolute fiercest fighter perhaps who has ever lived. He was wealthy beyond words and had a family that was ever growing and evolving. At every level there was a need for over the top leadership. At times we read that some of these different categories of responsibility for David began to erode. Have you ever been there? I have. You come to a place where you don’t think you can take one more hit and say, “How Long Lord?” Here’s the truth. Jesus will not allow more on you than you can handle, and if it does He’ll give you a way out. He’s with you right now. Don’t forget, David didn’t end a loser. He went out on top. That’s where you’re headed this AM. Back to the top.


Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m going to trust You. I won’t ask, “How Long Lord?” I know You will see me back to the top. Amen

    I can completely relate wi David. The worst came after we’d been married 3 yrs. death. God helped us. I am not saying why me anymore. I hv learned much over the years. Thought at 54, maybe God would have used the many many trials for his good in some way. Yet, they continue., even thou i have grown so much. I keep thinking the worst has come and God has brought me or us thru. After now, 27 yrs of marriage in May, while God has answered prayers, still I cry and cry out desperatly to God for help. This devo says what i have heard and been taught from a girl of 15 in youthgroup and church. He ll never give you more … n give you a way out. Yes i do trust! Will always trust. I will not divorce like 98% of my chrustian friends who struggled even in ministry like us. Please Pray for the husbands in ministry who are timid to stand up and be leaders of their home. Love their wives and children. Its so lonely serving all alone. And in a mega church. I can say i am encouraged we i go to work with the kids sundays n Wednesdays in our new campus location. So many coming to know jesus. They bless me. Snd my 20 yo daughter in college Singing in worship team – really learning how to enter in to the holy of holies. Not just put on a show. I am thankful. But she has become angrey very angry inside anout her father.
    Thank you for your prayers for husbands in minustry
