Always Believe in God

Do you ever think that God has left you? Or do you feel that God is not answering your prayers? Psalm 22 was written by David when he felt discouraged and alone. But I think David knew God loved him. David said, “God, the truth is that you really are the One I depend on…You have been my God since the day I was born” (verses 9-10a).
The verses in this psalm remind me of some other words. During World War II, millions of Jews were killed or placed in concentration camps. When the prisoners were finally freed, the soldiers found these words written on a wall: “I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining. I believe in love, even when I am alone. I believe in God, even when He is silent.”
Even though David felt that God was far away, he still knew that God would hear his prayer. David did not lose his faith in God. He held on to his faith and trusted God to take care of him.
Do you feel like David today? Don’t forget that you can always believe in God and trust Him.
