Psalm 13

Greetings!

This short Psalm may seem a little dreary for Christmas eve.  But think about how many people on the planet may have circumstances that leave them thinking God has forgotten them.  As Acts 17:26-27 says, “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.” 

God has not forgotten anyone.  He wants us to seek him and put our faith in Jesus.  My we share that message, trust in his unfailing love and rejoice in his salvation.

Psalm 13

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

 1 How long, O 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 every day have sorrow in my heart?
       How long will my enemy triumph over me?

 3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
       Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

 4 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 to the LORD,
       for he has been good to me.
