The Lord hath dealt bountifully with us!
"How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? For ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; and my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the Lord because he hath dealt bountifully with me”. Psalm 13.
Those of us who have experienced the love and salvation of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ can truly say that in spite of the difficulties, suffering, and trials that God allows us to experience, he hath overall dealt bountifully with us.
By his grace he has given us more good things than we ever deserve; and by his mercy he has kept from us the consequences of our sins and mistakes, and his wrath and punishment that we so rightly deserve.
When there are times when we are feeling sorry for ourselves and wonder if God has forsaken us forever, even as David did, let us look back over the way we have come thus far, and see how truly God has dealt bountifully with us. Let us rejoice in our hearts and sing songs of praise to him for his goodness to us.
