The knot at the end of the rope
Posted on December 04, 2008

This morning in Psalm 10 I read, ‘Why do You stand afar off, O Lord? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?” Doesn’t it feel like that sometimes? In the midst of the stuff we go through the daily junk we have to deal with; and even in the most difficult times, times of betrayal by friends, loss of loved ones, deep relational crises it seems that we are alone on an island. That is one of the things I love about Psalms, they do not sugar coat or brush over the reality of our experience with God.

 

The thing that struck me this morning was the Psalmist gave us the means to weather these storms. After cataloging the reality of the wicked people with whom he was dealing, he ends with, “The Lord is King forever and ever; nations have perished from His land. O Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear to vindicate the orphan and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.” In the midst of the darkness, the light is that God is sovereign. He does see. He does know. He will act. He has demonstrated over and over in Scripture and our experience that He is faithful. 

 

There is an old adage, “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” For us that knot, the thing we must hold onto, is the sovereignty of our faithful God.
