Often regarded as the saddest of all Psalms, the one before us is the supplication of one who is suffering. The Psalmist's experience is much like that of Job's but we are never told why he is enduring this trial. This Psalm reveals that God occasionally allows times of sadness and despair in a believer's life. We will not fully understand some things until we are with Jesus in heaven. In the meantime, we must trust the God of our salvation.
