Psalms 13:1 Have You Met Him?

Psalms 13:1 (KJV)
A Psalm of David. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

I have long agreed with the counsel that the Psalms are the place to read whenever we are going through difficult times. The Psalms address every sort of emotional pain under every kind of circumstance imaginable.

This is an excellent illustration of this. When in the midst of the storm, we often feel like it’s going to last forever.

The truth is, no storm lasts forever. By the way, no sunshine does either. Life is filled with mountaintops and valleys. Some indeed seem to experience higher mountaintops, and some have lower valleys, but all people have both.

The storm you are currently in will end sometime. They do not last forever.

Only eternity is forever. Some forever experience eternal life in the presence of God. Some will forever experience torments in the lake of fire and brimstone.

The difference is Jesus Christ.
