Psalm 13:6 “I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.”
SONGS OF THANKSGIVING
How great is the bounty of the Lord! No matter what I am facing, He is faithful. He always comes through and meets me right where I am. David says here that God has “dealt bountifully with me.” How true, how true!
But what does that mean? How does the Lord “deal bountifully”? The word means to do good to, to deal well with. In other words, God always does the right thing at the right time in the right way. We can depend upon that. Everyone else may let us down. Not God! He is there!
Oh me! How important is this to teach our kids! They are going to face disappoints by friends. People are going to turn on them and let them down. They will come home heartbroken over a lost love. They will feel shunned not getting that party invitation when all their other friends did.
I am not making light of their feelings. These hurts are real and they…well…hurt. These are the times you can read them Psalm 13. The first four verses sound downright depressing. But then David realizes the Lord is still there. He has always been. Your children need to see this too.
Are you feeling kind of down today? Has someone hurt you? Have you been abandoned by a loved one? Turn to Jesus. He is faithful and true. He will deal bountifully with you. He will do the right thing for you as well.
