Psalm 88:1 O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:
The psalmist is hurting. He is crying out to His God. God is the One that saved him and is the only One that can help when he is in trouble. This psalm is a cry for help. The psalmist realizes that he has failed God. He calls on God to move and work in His life. He realizes that he needs God.
I have been right here myself. I have known that I messed up and needed God. I have known that no other can help me in the mess that I am in. I think maybe you have as well. It is time to seek God.
It is good to know that we need Him. It is good to see the consequences of our sin and turn back to God. This psalm is a good one to pray when we are hurting and crying out to be heard.
