God Comes Through

God Comes Through
Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn Your servant away in anger. You have been my helper; do not leave me or abandon me, God of my Salvation. Psalm 27:9
The movie scenes in action films are typical. The hero has suffered a mortal wound. A companion pleads “Hang on. Help is coming!” Many times that help never arrives.
We often view God that way. We know that He can help us, but we’re unsure if He’ll come through. David seemed to express a similar feeling in Psalm 27. He pleaded with God not to hide His face from him, not to reject him in his time of need. However, even in his faltering cry, David recalled his history with God. He remembered that God had not forsaken him in the past, and he trusted that God would come through again.
When you and I get bombarded with fear that the Lord may not hear us or may have abandoned us, recall how God has always been faithful. Not once has He forsaken His children. Remember your history with God and stamp your trust in the same declaration David made, “God of my salvation!”  In the time of your deepest need, God came through!
