WHEN GOD IS REAL TO US
How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.
When we have had a real encounter with the Lord, we are able to respond as David does in this psalm. Even though he feels as though God has forgotten him, and he has sorrow in his heart, he still puts his trust in the Lord. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is still good, no matter what comes our way; we put our trust in Him.
