As I am searching this passage today, our world is facing a pandemic. This is a battle fought like no other. It is so comforting to me that the response to battles in the psalms is to recognize the problem but lay it at the Lord’s feet and praise Him because He has it under control.
“I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself. You said, ‘I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant, I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.’ The heavens praise your wonders, Lord, your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones. For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings? In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him. Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.”
There we have it...“I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever...” singing, declaration, praise are all a part of the psalms. It is what we must stand on, no matter what is happening around us. God really does have it all under control.
How I praise You, Lord, that You know everything about everything and I can trust that You will make it all fall into place. I can walk in faith trusting You.
