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

    Today’s devotional was “My soul is in deep anguish, how long, how long Lord.” (Psalm 6:3) this has so many implications that we can relate to the question how long? The application shows the challenge of over-the-top leadership. Helps reveal my own challenge with “Double Phymonia” for almost a year and still over-coming knowing Jesus knows just how much we can handle. Thanks so much, pastor for today’s S, O, A, P. and concluding prayer during our 21-day fast that prepares me for 2023’s destiny. You are the best!
