Monday Morning Devo: Psalm 6

I ask your forgiveness for not being original today, but I'm against a deadline. But I didn't want to leave you without some encouragement for the week, so here it is, Psalms 6, NKJV. Picture David on his knees before God, pouring out his heart to the listening Lord. David had been anointed by the prophet Samuel as king of all Israel and Judea, but while God was forming him into king material, David was pursued by the present jealous King Saul.

O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly troubled;
But You, O Lord—how long?
Return, O Lord, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?
I am weary with my groaning;
All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.
My eye wastes away because of grief;
It grows old because of all my enemies.
Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my supplication;
The Lord will receive my prayer.
10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
