Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
Do you find yourself having trouble today in your world? Are things going differently then what you planned? Are people behaving in ways you didn’t expect them to behave? Look to Jesus – he knows that you would have trouble in this world. Jesus died for you, Jesus overcame the world, so that you might have peace today!
There is nothing that man has invented or that God has created that can save your soul. The Lord who watches over you is the only one who can save you and keep you during this time in the desert – if you will obey and trust him.
Because you are righteous in the eyes of the Lord, you can sing a new song with shouts of joy to your Creator. Your song of praise is not based on your circumstances but on the fact the word of the Lord is true. God’s word which spoke the world into existence is powerful enough to deliver you, to heal you, and to restore you. God’s plans for you and for his creation stand firm forever and cannot be shaken. No matter what is going on in your life, you can trust everything God is doing.
Since God has chosen you to be his child, you are blessed and can be filled with joy today. Don’t worry – God is looking down from heaven and sees everything that is going on in your life. God knows your heart, God knows your thoughts. God knows what the people around you are doing, God knows their heart, God knows their thoughts. God understands exactly how you feel. God is the only help and shield you need today.
In the mystery of what is happening in your life, put your hope in the Lord. Rest today, with your hope in God’s unfailing love which surrounds you. Rejoice!
