But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, Because He has dealt bountifully with me. Psalm 13:5-6 NKJV
David begins this Psalm by asking, How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? Have you ever wondered if God has forgotten you? Have you ever felt like God is hiding His face from you?
David wandered into practical unbelief. But he did not camp there. He trusted in God’s mercy. David rejoiced in his salvation. He sang songs of love and devotion to the Lord!
Have you trusted in God’s mercy? Does your heart rejoice in the salvation of the Lord? Will you sing to Jesus today?
The blessing of sending out these messages is it gives me an opportunity to share what God has done in my life. When we meditate on the great and mighty things God has done in our lives we are encouraged in our faith.
In 1993 I was arrested. God intervened in my life at that critical time. He used my sin to bring me to faith in Jesus Christ. Over the years I have experienced the mercy of God in miraculous ways. Jesus has taught me to trust in His great mercy.
The day I received salvation a great burden was lifted from my soul. I cried tears of joy. My soul was cleansed. I began to see people and the world in new and different ways. God began to show me things in miraculous ways!
I have wavered off into practical unbelief. I’ve tripped and fallen. I have hardened my heart. God in his great mercy renewed the joy of my salvation. My heart rejoices in the joy of my salvation today. Jesus gave me the faith I needed when I needed it.
I sang to Jesus today. I will sing to Jesus tomorrow. I may not sing out loud. I will sing with the voice of an angel in my heart. I will sing to Jesus out of the depths of my heart because my God has dealt bountifully with me.
God has never failed to provide in my time of need. Jesus met every one of my needs because He knows exactly what I need when I need it!
God wants to do great and mighty things in your life. He wants to use you to do great and mighty things in other people’s lives. Jesus wants to use you to pour out healing and restoration on people who need Him.
Trust in God’s mercy. Remember the joy of your salvation. Sing to Jesus in your heart. The Lord will give you what you need when you need it, why? Because He deals bountifully with people who set their love and devotion upon Him!
Set your love and devotion on upon the Lord of your salvation. Jesus will pour out His bounty and blessing upon you!
