Meditations in the Psalms
Praise is everywhere in the Psalms! Here is no exception. David praises the Lord for lifting him up in the presence of his enemies, for healing him when he cried unto the Lord, and for sustaining him during all these trials. He recommends singing and giving thanks unto the Lord. Is there a song in your heart today?
- The reasons for his praise to the Lord – verses 1-3
- The response he gives for Who God is and for what He has done – verse 4
- The realization of the temporary nature of God’s anger – verse 5
- The result of stability in his life – verse 6
Yes, “weeping may endure for a night,” but praise God, “joy cometh in the morning.” All that we suffer is not worthy to be compared with the glory that is coming (Romans 8:18). One day we will know that it will be worth it all when we see Him!
