Daily devotional: Rejoice even in the Lord's silence

Scripture
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me.
Psalm 13:5-6 NIV

Observation

The psalmist who wrote Psalm 13 felt that the Lord was being silent to him, not answering or speaking to him. However, even in his sorrow, he acknowledged his trust and joy in the Lord, and how good the Lord has been to him.

Application
Even as I wrestle with prayers that have not yet been answered, trust in the Lord, rejoice in my salvation, and remember how good the Lord has been to me!

Prayer
Lord, You are so good to me. You have blessed me beyond anything I could ask or imagine. Thank you for providing for me, for transforming me, and for using me to accomplish Your purposes. Please hear my prayers and answer me. Help me to clearly understand Your will. I submit all my ways and my desires to You, Lord, and ask that You would please continue to direct my paths and make each step clear. I love you!
