“How long Lord? How long Lord? How long Lord? How long Lord? (Psalm 13:1-2)
Four times the Psalmist writes of his complaint, loneliness, sorrow and humiliation.
There are times in my life when I feel the Lord is a thousand miles away and He has forgotten about me or my situation. In some of these times, my only consolation is to go to the Word, usually the Psalms, and find a Psalm that reflects my situation and follow the Psalmist’s lead to a conclusion.
In this Psalm, David chose to trust the Lord anyway. He writes, “But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me” (Psalm 13:5-6).
How does this Psalm speak to you? Thank the Lord that He is faithful and always there to listen.
