Psalm 13:5-6 – 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.


In the beginning verses of Psalm 13, David asks the Lord if He will forget him forever.  He asks God for an answer so his enemies don’t prevail. Verse 5, David trusts in the steadfast love of the Lord.  David’s salvation comes from God and he rejoices in song for God is good.


I need to trust in the Lord and rely on Him as my only hope for salvation.  God allowed David to suffer and even question Him to draw David nearer to Him.  God will do the same for me and put circumstances in my way that keep or redirect me on the path to Him.  I must remember that whatever I am facing, God has loved me so much that He has met me greatest need in salvation through faith in Jesus. That is the greatest news and cause for celebration and joy even before the situation may be resolved.



Thank you for your steadfast love and salvation through Jesus.  Help me to resonate on that and rejoice in you knowing trials can bring me closer to you.
