Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 24 - Morning

"Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.
Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, Lord, how long?
Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love."

- Psalms 6:1-4

A Psalmist Afflicted with Sickness    

This Psalm is a lament of a sick person seeking restoration and petitioning the Lord for relief in their broken soul.  The word “agony” and “anguish” are the same Hebrew verb. This is seen in the ESV translation where the Hebrew verb is translated “troubled” in both the reference to the bones and to the soul. The disease or illness has taken its toll in the Psalmist’s physical being (“bones”) and in their soul.

Interestingly before the Psalmist seeks the Lord’s mercy for healing he pleads with the Lord, asking him to:

“not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.”

This may be because the writer associates his sin (or, his sinful nature) with sickness and affliction. But, since there is no confession of a specific sin or repentance for a sinful behavior this writer may be suffering innocently like Job who was righteous, yet was afflicted merely because he lived in this fallen world and was marred by a sin nature. In contrast David writes the same way in Psalm 38, but ultimately confesses his sin:

“Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath…there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin. My guilt has overwhelmed me…For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me. I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin.” (Psalm 38:1, 3-4, 17-18)

All men know that they will someday die, but it is during times of sickness, pain and agony that men vividly experience the reality of sin in the world and in their human nature while they live. God will judge sin, but in his mercy the Lord has also provided a way of escape from sin for the man who seeks him.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"We are the Bibles the world is reading;
We are the creeds the world is needing;
We are the sermons the world is heeding."

- Billy Graham
Something to Ponder??

Soteriology is the study of the doctrine of salvation (Greek word sozo means "save, rescue, deliver, cure"; Greek word soter means "savior, preserver").

God’s salvation covers:
• Eternity past
• Eternity future
• Every person without exception, either positively
or negatively
• Effects angelic realm in the heavenlies and underworld
• Includes personal salvation
• Includes national salvation
• Includes cosmic salvation
• Centers on Jesus Christ

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Shakach (Hb) - Forget (Eng) - the Hebrew word shakach means "to forget." The use of
shakach can refer to forgetting facts, details, information, etc. But, it can also mean "to fail to take action. This is how it is used in Lamentations 5:20 and Hosea 4:6.

The excavation of Megiddo uncovered these features that agree with the testimony of scripture. Megiddo had been an urban center until it was destroyed by fire at the time of Joshua’s invasion. It had been home to Canaanites, but also had been occupied later by Hebrews.  All these people groups left behind gods, goddesses, altars, etc. from their style of worship.  Architectural work that was similar in design to Solomon’s other fortification was discovered (1 Kings 9:15-17).  All of this agrees with the biblical account of Megiddo on the edge of the Jezreel Valley.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

During times of oppression or affliction am I quick to turn to the Lord for help? Do I seek the Lord for strength and deliverance first before I turn to complain? I will seek the Lord for help before I seek a person to grumble and complain to.

"Eat honey, my son,
for it is good;
    honey from the comb is sweet to your taste.
Know also that wisdom
is like honey for you."

- Proverbs 24:13-14
