Psalm 13 – God Will Deliver

by | March 27, 2020 5:08 am


How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? … But I have trusted in your faithful love; my heart will rejoice in your deliverance. I will sing to the Lord because he has treated me generously. (Psalms 13:1,5-6)

Things are bad in the world right now, but some experts say this still isn’t the real crisis. It’s the calm before the storm. As things go from bad to worse and people you know start to contract the virus, possibly even die from it, it will seem like God has forgotten us. In biblical terms, to “forget” means to withhold help and comfort from someone. David felt it.
But even in the darkest of days, David also believed that God was still loving, faithful, and generous. He believed that God would deliver him. And he did. Hopefully for us, even Jesus experienced the same thing. On the cross he cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” But then three days later, he was resurrected from the dead. No matter how dark the night gets for us, the resurrection of Christ proves that daylight is coming.
