18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. — Psalm 145:18, 19 NIV
Have you ever felt frustrated and exasperated because you had prayed and prayed about something and it seemed as if God didn’t hear or worse yet, that He didn’t care? Have you ever just wanted to scream at God and tell Him to answer you right now?
David felt that very same thing when he wrote Psalm 143.
God is big enough to handle our frustrations with Him and He loves us enough to allow us to be frustrated. We aren’t the first of His kids to throw a temper tantrum. I am not saying that He likes it, but He can deal with it and still love us. He is always there to carry us through it. Again, not because of our faithfulness but because of His faithfulness. That is why David could write Psalm 143 and Psalm 145.
