Way To Brighten Our Spirits
“Why are you so downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed in me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.” Psalm 42:11
The sons of Korah give us a way to brighten our spirits when we are down. Their advice is to “Put (y)our hope in God.”
We have times when we have no alternative but to trust God for the outcome. These events are tests for each of us.
When tribulation comes upon us, we have to fix our eyes on Jesus and allow Him to guide us through. We need to intentionally deposit our trust in the Lord each time. If we yield to the Lord, we will grow spiritually as well as gain victory over the issue and the enemy.
After God undertakes and brings us through our trials, we get to praise Him for being there for us.
Our praise might be for the fact that He guided us through the circumstance. Our praise may be for someone who helped us with a need while we dealt with the issue. Our praise could be for God intervening in a way that only He could.
