You may find yourself destroyed – where do you turn? Betrayed – who’s shoulder do you cry on? You cannot go on – where will you lean?
If you’re a follower of Jesus I hope that you are going to Him more and more. I told you 3 weeks ago: we want you to see Jesus as your go-to instead of being your fall-back.
Are you there yet?
David wrote this psalm as a song describing how God had brought him through his life – a life which was threatened by people wanting to kill him, running for safety, hiding in caves and mountains. David knew trouble. You do too. I want you to know that God’s love never fails you. Believe even when you can’t see it. Read the words from Psalm 30 found in The Message.
I give you all the credit, God—
you got me out of that mess,
you didn’t let my foes gloat.
2-3 God, my God, I yelled for help
and you put me together.
God, you pulled me out of the grave,
gave me another chance at life
when I was down-and-out.
4-5 All you saints! Sing your hearts out to God!
Thank him to his face!
He gets angry once in a while, but across
a lifetime there is only love.
The nights of crying your eyes out
give way to days of laughter.
6-7 When things were going great
I crowed, “I’ve got it made.
I’m God’s favorite.
He made me king of the mountain.”
Then you looked the other way
and I fell to pieces.
8-10 I called out to you, God;
I laid my case before you:
“Can you sell me for a profit when I’m dead?
auction me off at a cemetery yard sale?
When I’m ‘dust to dust’ my songs
and stories of you won’t sell.
So listen! and be kind!
Help me out of this!”
11-12 You did it: you changed wild lament
into whirling dance;
You ripped off my black mourning band
and decked me with wildflowers.
I’m about to burst with song;
I can’t keep quiet about you.
God, my God,
I can’t thank you enough.
Praying that it won’t be long until you feel like this and can sing your own song of deliverance. Keep praying, keep believing and keep waiting on Him – He’s coming!
