Psalm 22 - Summary

Outline - Identifying with the sufferings of Christ

Sometimes we feel a strong desire for the Lord to hear us about something, and we wonder why it seems like He has forsaken us for such a long time
We consider how He has helped other people, and feel like we must be the lowest worm that crawls, for how sinful we must be, and unworthy of His help
But I thought that I had a very special personal relationship with the Lord.
Christ understands our deepest suffering
Delivered to praise Him
...He heard (v24)
The Lord's purpose in all of this


All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

The Lord has a purpose for our situation when we are suffering very long, when we are suffering pursuing righteousness, and when we are unheard and feeling forsaken by Him.

Christ allows those situations so that He can use me to get a great victory for His glory and kingdom (v28), to many people, all over the world (v31). That can happen if I remain faithful, as I turn the situation to praise Him.


As I cry to the Lord for help with a certain situation in my life, I'll look forward to using His answer as an opportunity to praise and glorify Him.
