Hurt, Pain...Blessings, Mercy (Psalms 13)

Have there been times when we feel like God isn’t answering our prayers? Times that no matter how much we cry to Him, it seems as though He doesn’t help us? I know I do. Other times I feel like Satan is attacking me, and all I can do is curl up into a pathetic little ball while he kicks me time and time again. Why does God do these things? First off, God has an awesome plan for our life. There are 2 choices. One, we aren’t walking right with Him. If we don’t hear His voice, or even know Him that well, then why do we expect Him to help us? Choice 2 is, we are walking but this whole thing is part of God molding us and teaching us to trust in Him.

Yes, I am a human. And I have been struggling with a few things. Time and time again, I have asked God to take these things away from me, but he has not. God has not told me why He hasn’t taken it away from me. But I know He has told me to trust Him. Despite everything, despite the pain and the hurt, I know God is going to make it all come to good one way or another. And yes, despite the pain and hurt in this situation, God has been blessing me.

Verses 5 and 6:

5 But I have trusted in Your mercy;

My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

6 I will sing to the Lord,

Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

God has dealt bountifully! Look around you, what has He blessed you with. For me, God has been giving me wonderful opportunities to serve in ministry, and I totally love it! I know for sure that God has called me to ministry, and to be able to do it at a young age like this is an honor. I look at God’s mercy. I deserve to die! But yet He saved me from my sin, from going to eternal death in hell. I need to trust in His mercies today…

You need to trust in His mercies today.

P.S. For those of you who don't have your Bible handy, I included a link to the passage (that's what the "Read It" link is)
