Have you ever been in a period of waiting? A time when God seemed silent? Don't worry you're in good company. Even David, a man after God's own heart, felt forgotten by the Lord.
Time and time again God has shown that those stints of perceived silence are used to shape His people. It's in the waiting that we draw close to Him. We gain the endurance needed to accomplish His plan for our lives.
Psalm 13 (below) ends with the words "I will sing the Lord's praise, for He has been good to me." In the midst of waiting it might not feel like He is good but feelings are temporary and misleading. Trust in the everlasting truth of his character, and sing.
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.
