Psalm 13 – God Is Good Even When He Says Wait Longer?

Can we honestly believe that God is good even when He says, wait longer? Psalm 12 looked at God telling us to, in today’s terms, hang in there. Now, God’s saying wait longer. Really? And on top of it, we’re still supposed to say, God is good? Yes! Absolutely! ‘Cause He is.

One last thought

I want to close with one final thought. I can’t tell you how long I felt like God was out to get me. Blaming Him for things that were most likely my own doing from poor choices. I was, in that way, like Jonah. I wanted to be left alone by God. To have Him just give me a break. From Him.

After many years, I’m glad He didn’t. Who knows where I’d be without Him. Not here, that’s for sure.

But I can say, when we want to be left alone by God, or when we feel like He’s ignoring us, those are the times when we really need to go to Him. Realizing, like David did in those last verses:

Ps 13:5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.

Ps 13:6 I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.

Yes – I can say that. And write it. Now, if I could only do it more often. And quicker.
