The Psalmist describes his suffering in vivid fashion, but he knows fully well that God alone can rescue him. Therefore, he cries out to God pointing out that there is “no health in my bones” (Psalm 38:3). Whatever is the nature of his sickness, it has become life threatening and the chances of complete recovery are diminishing. His condition has affected him emotionally. He is crushed and weeping inconsolably (Psalm 38:8). Yet he has faith that his hope of healing, comfort and peace is in God. Therefore, he will wait and pray to God to answer him (Psalm 38:15).
