I can think of so many times when I called out to God, saying, "Please answer me, Lord!" Each time, it was a desperate prayer, from a desperate place.

Sometimes I felt shamed, other times, I sought justice. Most times I was angry, and convinced myself (true or not) that my anger was "righteous."

So this Psalm is perfect for me, and probably for you too– that is, if you're anything like the rest of us.

And as a result of seeking God and calling out to him, I can say with assurance that he has put gladness in my heart! It might have taken a dozen years, but looking back, there's no doubt where my hope comes from.

So I will lie down in peace, just like this Psalmist, and know that God is for me. Who could ever go against me with God as my ally?
