But I Have Trusted

5 But I have trusted in your faithful love.

My heart will rejoice in your salvation.

6 Yes, I will sing to the Lord

because he has been good to me.

(Psalm 13:5–6)

But I Have Trusted

Good Day Family,

Have you experienced moments in your life when your trust in God was put to the test? I don’t mean your belief in God. I’m referring to those times when you have no doubt God is real, but you wonder if God is on your side. Those moments happen when you question if God’s plan is for your good. Sometimes, we disagree with God’s decisions or resent what God allows to happen in our lives.

Psalm 13 is a psalm of lament that begins with “How long, O Lord…” The psalmist cries out with despair

and hopelessness. Their suffering has been prolonged, and their enemies rejoice in victory over them.

God seems silent, distant, and indifferent to their pain and their circumstances. We can probably attest

to times in our own lives when the Lord seemed that way to us as well.

Deliverance and redemption rarely happen as quickly as destruction and defeat. Growth, change, and repair often happen in silence. God’s view is long and sure. The psalmist encourages themself by deciding to trust God no matter what it looks like and no matter what they face. We can trust in the Lord!

Trusting God,

Be well,

Pastor Cheryl

Let us encourage one another. Let us love our neighbor. Let us be the church.
