Triumphant In God’s Mercy and Salvation

Boston in the clouds and sun-wide

“But I have trusted in your mercy; my heart will rejoice in your salvation.”
Psalm 13:5

David certainly had his troubles; I mean, when you run a kingdom, you’re bound to have some enemies and people who just don’t like you. He had times when it looked like God had forgotten him—at least it did in the natural to David. And during those times he had to go back to his foundation of trusting in and relying on God’s mercy, loving-kindness, and salvation.

So after he’s stated his situation in the natural in verses 1-4, he adds a “BUT” in verse 5…a conjunction to show a transition that even though there was one situation to begin with, he didn’t expect it to last. Blah, blah, blah has happened, BUT I have trusted in your mercy and my heart WILL rejoice in your salvation. What a statement of faith.

He didn’t see it in the natural; but by faith because of God’s mercy and grace, He knew there was salvation. He may not have understood salvation as we know it today because Jesus had not yet come and secured our eternal and restored fellowship with God, yet David knew the promise of God’s salvation and in that he had confident expectation.

Let your heart and soul rejoice today in God’s provision of salvation for you. It’s the total package—everything you need every day of your life for every situation you’ll face. You can triumph in life when you walk in the power of restored fellowship, eternal life, and continued blessings and grace of the God who loves you.
