If you have ever looked at the world around you and wondered why God is so far away, this Psalm is for you.
•It begins with a question. “Why are you so far from this place?” (V1)
•Following is a description of the wicked and a world in which injustice and evil run rampant. (V2-11)
•Finally, the promise that God hears, sees, and acts. (V12-18)
When evil and injustice run rampant and God seems to be far away, His people must pray that He will stop evil and suffering. He will hear our prayer and give us strength. In the end, justice and truth will prevail.
