Psalm 28:7

It was years ago when I printed off and framed this verse.

Yesterday, I received some sad news.

As I prayed for all involved,

my heart yearning for Jesus’s answer,

my eye caught this verse.

“The LORD is my strength and shield.” Psalm 28:7a

My heart was encouraged.

I don’t have to be strong,

because Jesus is all the strength I need.

I don’t have to look farther than Him to find the solution.

“…in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped…” Psalm 28:7b

My heart can rest securely in His love.

My mind can cling to His plans.

Even if I’m unsure what He is doing,

I can pray and wait to see where He is leading.

He has proven His faithfulness.

I have tasted of His goodness.

Jesus will answer.

While I’m waiting for Jesus

and praying for His guidance

I am going to praise Him.

That’s where the last part of the verse comes in.

“…my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him.” Psalm 28:7c

I will praise the Lord.

And first thing on my list is

a Bible verse

He had me print off and frame,

years ago.
