Monday Meditation

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God. Psalm 42:11 (NRSV) In this text David encourages himself in the Lord. He takes a real assessment of how he was feeling, repositions himself from a place of hopelessness to hope, then redirects his focus on God. There will be times in our life when we become discouraged or sad. Before we sink into depression, raise the banner of hope and anchor your faith in the Lord. Be honest with your feelings, then surrender those feelings to God. Allow Him to lift your head and encourage you in your innermost parts. Give God your undivided attention, no matter what you are going through. Remember, He deserves our praise, in every season of our life. Set aside the weight of your worries and worship. This week as we meditate on this verse, let us find encouragement in God. Hope is our faith in motion. Hold on to hope, with great expectation and be empowered in the midst of your praise. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
