Never Forsaken

Psalm 9:10: “Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.”

A friend and I discussed our trust in God. She has prayed for her children for years and hasn’t seen results. Sometimes she thinks things are worse.

She continues to trust in the Lord even when it seems he doesn’t hear her prayers or doesn’t know she exists.

People will disappoint us. Some will betray us, but the Bible says the Lord will never forsake those who seek him.

I prayed for an unsaved co-worker for several years. The more I prayed and trusted in the Lord for her salvation, the meaner she became.

Years later, I learned God had answered my prayers. He had not forsaken me. That former co-worker now knows and loves the Lord. She and her husband serve the Lord together.

Dear God, thank you that you have never forsaken those who seek you. Amen.

Application: How will you show your trust in the Lord this week?
