THIS CAVE SEASON HAS DAVID
“I cry aloud to the Lord, I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out my complaint before him, before him I tell Him my troubles.” (v 1-2)
“When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me.” (vs. 3)
“Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.” (vs .4)
David becomes more morose as he moves on:
“Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me” (v. 6)
“rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me. Set me free from my prison that I may praise your name,” (v. 6b,7)
Christian journey consists of three levels.
“Mountain-top experiences” when you feel close to God and everything is going well.
“Ordinary days.” This is the daily grind, walking the road.
“Dark days” - CAVE SEASONS when we “trudge through confusion, doubt, despair, and discouragement.”
