Psalm 113: How Long?

It seems like the world is in a pretty chaotic time. There’s a lot of hurt and struggle, a lot of pain, a lot of hate. It’s during times like this that we can catch ourselves asking and wondering: How long, Lord. How could you let these things happen? When will you come through and fix them? What are you doing right now? The author of Psalm 13 is obviously going through a difficult time as we hear him cry out: “How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?”. It’s a challenging idea but as the author struggles with his thoughts and even his relationship with God he comes back to the idea that he trusts in God’s unfailing love and salvation. The Lord has been good to me. Find peace in these words.
