To you they cried out and were saved; in you they trusted and were not put to shame.
The history of God's faithfulness with his people Israel is an ongoing reminder that we can trust him to deliver us.
While in our human calculating of time, God's answer may be slow in coming, his track record in history reminds us that he will answer, deliver, and bless his people in his time.
In our worst of nightmares, we can be reminded that God is faithful and is attentive to our cries of despair, grief, agony, and fear.
Heavenly Father, bless your people everywhere who find themselves in difficult situations. Empower them with your Spirit and bless them with a change for the better in their dire situation. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
