May 19 – He Has Been Good to Us


“How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? … 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.” – Psalm 13:1, 5-6 (ESV)

The trial and testing faith believers in Jesus encounter are brought into our lives in order that we may know with certainty the faithfulness of our God. David had learned that God’s love never failed. He had gone through many different and difficult circumstances and consequently had come to know he could always sense that no matter what happened God always loved him and was always with him. Because of turmoil, many who believe in Jesus are fearful of what’s next. Evildoers seem to be taking over our world. And like David, we can know that God’s love for us is unfailing His promises are true. No matter what happens in our lives, our world, God still loves us. We can depend on it and we can trust in His love as David did. He’ll bring into our lives experiences which will be for our good. Then our hearts will rejoice as David’s heart did and like him we’ll sing to God. We have the same reason; we have the same promise of unfailing love and we can rest in the knowledge that God has promised and has been good to us just as He was to David.
