Hurry it Up God!

Listen here…

Make haste, O God, to deliver me! Hurry, O LORD, to help me!

Psalm 70.1

One of the things I love about King David is that he’s real. He’s believable because, quite frankly, most of us have been there. Our emotions swirling about our circumstances and in complete conflict with good theology. I identify with David’s “humanness.” But the notion of God being in a hurry, well, just ain’t so. Is God so far off that He needs to cover some ground to rescue us? Or is He surprised by our plight? Quickening God’s pace insinuates that He has been caught off guard or is somehow indisposed with something else. I understand David’s anxiety, but God is an ever-present Helper with us. He can attend to every need of every person simultaneously without breaking a sweat. Do we have confidence that our God will always be “on time?”
