03/27/19 – Luke 7:36-8:3; Psalm 69:1-18; Proverbs 12:1

Have you ever met someone who has a fear of water — a fear of drowning?  In some cases they will never board a boat and even crossing over water via a bridge is stressful.  This fear is called aquaphobia. 

I raise this concept because as I read Psalm 69 I could envision from David’s word-picture how desperately someone with aquaphobia would seek a way out of water.  His words reminded me, again, of how urgently David “sought God’s heart.”

Psalm 69:

Save me, O God,  for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me.
I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,  looking for my God.
