Have you ever felt abandoned by God? David felt the same way when he penned the Psalms, but he never allowed his feelings to cloud the truth of God’s word.

But I have trusted in thy steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

Psalm 13:5

David was sensitive to God’s presence in his life. His circumstances did not change, but he remembered that God’s love for him will not fail. Our faith is often tested when we feel that God is far away from us . Remember that all trials no matter how intense are designed to bring us to a deeper trust in God. Our times are in God’s hands and God will someday make all things right. In John 16:33, Jesus told us that we will have tribulation, but also encourages us to be of good cheer for He has overcome the world. Do you trust God in your difficult seasons?
