Psalm 10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
Sometimes is seems like God doesn’t notice what is happening to us. It seems that He doesn’t answer prayer. It seems that He has forgotten us but that is never the case.
Sometimes God allows us or causes us to wait for His answer. It can be a long time and much longer than we would ever think that it should be. We can feel like He has abandoned us.
You should notice here that David, God’s man, felt that way also. You should realize that this is a feeling common to man.
