Message of the Day: Disappointed? Ridiculed? God Will Keep You
“The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life.” (Psalm 42:8, NASB)
Psalm 42 & 43 express the sorrow of a devout worshipper, possibly a member of the group of singers assigned by David. He could no longer go to worship at the Temple in Jerusalem because the kingdom was now divided, the northern king would not allow him to travel to Jerusalem.
Ungodly friends ridiculed him for having such strong feelings for a God who was far away and can be of no help to him (v.3). But despite this disappointment and ridicule he believes that God will keep him.
Are you disappointed with what’s happening in your life? Do you experience ridicule? Be assured of God’s constant goodness, faithfulness and mercy. He will lift you up and keep you. A prayer to the God of your life is the key!
