God’s Hope for Your Heart from Psalm 43
GOD IS YOUR REFUGE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE
In the wake of an historic Supreme Court decision that has left so many believers saddened and afraid for what’s to come, the best thoughts of all are not those I could share from my heart, but those God would share from His.
In the calendar of content that guides this devotional series, today brought us to Psalm 43. I invite you to read it slowly and prayerfully, and as you do, may you find hope in this truth: God is your refuge in times of trouble.
“Vindicate me, God, and defend my cause
against an ungodly nation;
rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man.
For You are the God of my refuge.
Why have You rejected me?
Why must I go about in sorrow
because of the enemy’s oppression?
Send Your light and Your truth; let them lead me.
Let them bring me to Your holy mountain,
to Your dwelling place.
Then I will come to the altar of God,
to God, my greatest joy.
I will praise You with the lyre,
God, my God.
Why am I so depressed?
Why this turmoil within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
my Savior and my God.”
