Psalm 13 (NIV)
1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 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?
3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.
After a moment of despair, David remembered that he really did trust God & he cleared away the fog from his weary eyes as God enlightened his vision. David shifted his heart posture to rejoice in nothing else, he could rejoice in the salvation God gave him. Davids praise to God's goodness instead of the tired feelings renewed his strength. David was not forgotten but in the perfect place of refocusing of a new vision, a new strategy, new season. Rejoice for God is doing a new thing.
Goodness: morally excellent, virtuous, righteous and noble.
Mercy: a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion
Salvation: liberation from ignorance or illusion
deliverance from the power and effects of sin, danger, destruction or failure, and difficulty
Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 40:29 (AMPC)
He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound].
John 14:6a (NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life..."
