9 Hide [cathar] not thy face [paniym] far from me; put [natah]
not thy servant [`ebed] away [natah] in anger ['aph]: thou hast
been my help [`ezrah]; leave [natash] me not, neither forsake [`azab] me, O God ['elohiym] of my
salvation [yesha`]. KJV-Interlinear
9 Do not
hide Thy face from me, Do not turn Thy servant away in anger; Thou hast been my
help; Do not abandon me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation! NASB
Your best friend, your best person to know, your very best connection in all of life, is God.
God is truth. God is life. God is the sovereign force and power and authority in all of existence.
It is God that controls history. It is God that places people into history and removes them based on His perfect foreknowledge of all future events. It is God that holds this universe and all of existence together. Without God nothing would exist. Without God, you would not have any kind of destiny, and certainly you would not even exist.
Without God in your life, you face phenomenal loss and perhaps worse.
Never believe in Christ and you face the eternal Lake of Fire. Believe in Christ, but remain indifferent toward your spiritual obligations and role in life, and you face loss of eternal reward, not to mention losing the opportunity to glorify Christ by means of your life in this life.
By being indifferent, by being apathetic, by believing that you know it all and do not need to follow Gods counsel, do not need to abide by Gods rules, believe that you can establish your own rules for life, rejecting the role that God placed you in, in life, then your failure and loss of Gods attention is certain.
The one person in all of existence, that you need the most, is God.
The one person that most people disregard in life, is God. But ignoring Gods expectations of you for life is the very biggest mistake that anyone can make, especially when you may not see your error until it is too late, when you have been removed from this life, and then cannot do it over.
Pursue your spiritual life, as God expects, in accordance with Gods design, fulfill the obligations toward self and others as God has designed, and the distance and separation suggested by this verse will not occur and you will have the bestest best friend in heaven, ever.
God invented and created this universe in all of its vast and minute detail. He should be the one that guides your life.
