Psalm 123 is the cry of a person who has nothing left to do but pray. When you have had enough, when you are at the end of your tether, don’t despair but look to God. Don’t take matters into your own hands, but look to the hand of your Master. Look to God for mercy. Confess your complete dependence on God for all things. And then through Jesus you may approach God’s throne with confidence, so that you may receive mercy and find grace to help you in your time of need. The psalmist knows the right place to look. He lifts his eyes to the Lord whose throne is in heaven. God has more than enough resources to help us in our time of need because He is the king of heaven.
