2018-11-14 Bless the Lord, O My Soul.

Good Morning.

A good friend asked if I would write sometime about consoling. How did he know that I needed some of that? I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t too much feel like digging through scripture on that right now. But, this was a nudge from God, so let’s see what we can find. First, let’s look at the verse from my Puritan devotional.

Psalm 30:4-5 Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning.

Let’s then take a look at verses from two Psalms that make them look as if they could be one.

Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

Psalm 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

Psalm 43:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

Sometimes there simply are no answers to our questions. Jesus is our only source of hope. Our rock and our salvation.

Father, comfort those who are in need. Amen.
