Psalms Chapter 13 has been on repeat this whole week. No matter what Psalm I read, I always read Chapter 13 this week. You go through days or moments when you are thinking.. “How long must I go through this, Lord? How long till you answer my prayer?? When will you change my heart and change my mind, when it comes to certain things??” Have you ever just said… “HELP ME.” or maybe “FIX ME.”..? So many times we seek answers now, and are in such desperation…where we are oh so desperate for God. Times where we feel as if we are failing, and losing. Sometimes it feels as if the enemy is winning his battle with our mind. Psalms 13 deals with all of the following feelings..
…And when it seems as if all victory is lost… Psalms 13:5 states: “But I trust in your unfailing love, my heart rejoices in your salvation”. It is okay to have feelings of uncertainty and brokenness..but it is important to remember that we have the blessedness of unfailing love. Unfailing love moves us to do anything for someone’s well being, and we have the opportunity to be loved by unfailing love. This is a call to rejoice. This is a celebration of salvation. Verse six states: “I will sing the Lords praise, for he has been good to me.”
Nothing too big to speak on today. Just a reminder if you are desperately waiting on God when it comes to anything, you wait on someone who has unfailing love towards you, and is working all things together for our good. Romans 8:28 states it (“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.“) So.. pray and praise through the pain. You are in the best hands you can be in. Although uncertainty deals with our emotions, we certainly serve an unfailing God. Rest in unfailing love.
1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.
