Psalms 143:7 (KJV) The Sense of His Presence

Psalms 143:7 (KJV)
Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
The Psalmist never said he would go into the pit but that he would be like those who do.
The difference between the saved and the lost is their relationship with the Lord.Whether one goes to heaven or hell is entirely determined by that relationship.
The difference between the hopeful and the fearful is that same relationship.A saved person may feel just like the lost person when their fellowship with the Lord is not what it ought to be.
Gill writes, “…in the favour of God is life, his absence is as death: or the pit of hell, the pit of destruction; that is, be in such horror and despair, and under such apprehensions of divine wrath, as the damned feel.” Note that he does not say to be damned but to be as the damned feel.
The difference is all in the sense of the Lord’s presence, which is maintained primarily through prayer and the ministry of God’s Word in us.
