Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Psalm 13:1a & 5, which says,
“How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? (5) But I have trusted in Your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.”
I believe every believer will have “How Long O LORD” moments. These are the moments where you and I have been in extended period of distress; and it seems like the LORD has closed His eyes and ears to our adversity. We cry out over and over again, and we remain in our dilemma. God’s silence and non-action seems cause time to stand still. However, it is during those extended times of anguish that we have to draw from the fact that our LORD is completely faithful. Even in our waiting, He always upholds us. He is always able to fortify us moment by moment.
We have had to endure many “How long moments, and the LORD has continued to graciously and faithfully maintain us. Therefore, we can be like David and rejoice in His deliverance even before it happens. Why? Because He is absolutely faithful to come to our aid.
