Hope Prevails

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 42:1-11

Psalm 42 reads like a back and forth dialogue between hope and fear. But as David talks to himself about God, recalling His goodness and faithfulness and His steadfast love and protection—hope prevails! It wins the day. As David intentionally focuses on God and what he knows is truth, he is able to push aside his doubts and fears and confidently proclaim, "Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God" (vs. 11).

When you're wrestling with fear and doubts, do you ever (like David) talk through with yourself what you know to be true of God? Why is it important to look back at what God has done for you when you encounter difficult circumstances? What's one thing that encouraged you from this psalm, and why? Tami

Tami,

Just like David I keep struggling with the flesh when difficult times comes,but when I remember how God was there for me in times past sure encourages me to know that God can and will do it again.
That is one of the reason to remember God has been faithful in the past and will be faithful now and in the future too.
I like all the words that were encouraging David was also an encouragement to me too.

The two first verses was an encouragement and a challenge to have such a love for the Lord that I pant after His presence and words.

As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God.

May I continue to thirst for God!!
