Get up, God!
I think that David knows God intimately, so when he questions God, it is because he knows that God can make a plan. He trusts in God's providence and care, even though he is not witnessing it in the present.
When you and I pray, are we too polite with God (out of fear) or are we totally honest with him?
Get up, God! Are you going to sleep all day?
Wake up! Don’t you care what happens to us?
Why do you bury your face in the pillow?
Why pretend things are just fine with us?
And here we are—flat on our faces in the dirt,
held down with a boot on our necks.
Get up and come to our rescue.
If you love us so much, Help us! - Psalm 44 (Message)
Living in Grace
