Have you ever been in a really bad funk? Trying to live for the LORD, but seems He is against you? As David, I have been here. You cant see nothing but destruction. Now, this IS NOT reality, its emotions & feelings.
Psalm 88:10 Will You work wonders for the dead? Shall the dead arise and praise You? Selah 11 Shall Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave? Or Your faithfulness in the place of destruction?
David is appealing heavy on logic, can I praise You from the grave? How about Your lovingkindness? Can ones see Your faithfullness if Im destroyed? This isnt lack of faith, this is a man who is pressing into the kingdom appealing to His God.
