Scripture Song of Psalm 69:1-3
“Save Me, O God”
Commentary on Psalm 69:1-3
Our personal perspective
There are times when the servant of God is thrust out into deep water, and finds that in order to keep from drowning, he must learn a deeper trust than he has ever known. We may think that our situation is one of pointless suffering, but God has promised that He knows his plans for us, and they are good, not evil (Jer. 29:11). Paul admonishes us, "Be not weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not" (Gal. 6:9). So we press on in obedience to Him who bought us at the cost of his own life, trusting in his unfathomable love and wisdom.
