Psalms 42:10-11 Passion Translation …Their wounding words pierce my heart, Over and over while they say, “Where is this god of yours?” So I say to my soul, “Don’t be discouraged, Don’t be disturbed, for I know My God will BREAKTHROUGH for me.” Then I’ll have plenty of reasons To praise Him all over again. Yes, living before His face is my saving grace!”
So, when a dream seems to be put on hold or the answer to your prayers haven’t manifested as quick as you wanted and the devil is filling your head with doubt, tears have become your food for today, despair is attempting to lock you in the dark dungeon of depression, people are questioning your faith, you begin to feel like a victim instead of a victor, love and comfort seems to have taken a vacation, what are you to do??
This Psalm is written by one of the toughest men in the Bible and yet he is experiencing the same emotions we have when things just go wrong!! He keeps speaking to himself over and over again, “Put your hope in God and keep praising because your answer will come, your Breakthrough will be there, just keep going!!! Psalms 42:5…”So then, my soul, why would you be depressed? Why would you sink into despair? Just keep hoping and waiting on God, your Savior. For no matter what, I will still sing with praise, For living before His face is my saving grace!!! GET BACK UP, KEEP PRAISING, KEEP GOING!!!
