Psalm 22:1 My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, And from the words of My groaning?
This is an amazing prophetic chapter. The revelation of Jesus' first coming, and the events that would entail. During this time, chapter & verse breaks did not exist. Rabbis would often give the first part of the section, in this case the psalm, and the students would go find the portion I think that still would take much time, yet I do think once you found it, your more apt to cherish every word. David would have times he felt forsaken, no doubt, however, ultimately this is speaking of Christ. Jesus would utter these words on calvarys cross. When the sin of the world was placed upon Jesus, the Father had to turn His face upon Him. That slight sever in communion had great impact. I hope our relationship is that close, that when we sin, we notice that break that quick.
