There’s never been a better time for you to claim the promise God has for your life. I want to encourage you today and let you know that your patience has paid off. You’ve seen other people around you walk into their purpose.
Today I want you to click on this message so you can get the inspiration you need to walk into yours. And here’s a special prayer for this day.
“Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for giving me the strength to wait even when I wanted to give up. I expect and believe that everything I had to wait for will be worth the while. In Jesus Name. Amen.”
He Will Restore Your Soul
It is a beautiful and merciful providence that these two starkly different psalms are placed right next to each other, authored by the same person. Because they illustrate the diverse ways we experience the strange reality that is the life of faith in our world. If we live long enough, we all experience the occasional agonizing phenomenon of God’s apparent silence. And we all will also experience God’s kind restoration, peace, and protection. In fact, we eventually come to realize that what felt like abandonment was a merciful nearness and shepherding of a kind we hadn’t previously understood or perceived. We discover that God’s promises are infinitely more substantial and reliable than our perceptions.
But there’s an even deeper beauty and mercy in this poetic and thematic juxtaposition. Both psalms are messianic — they foreshadow and prophesy of Jesus. And in this profound realization, we discover that the order in which these psalms appear is no accident.
