Have you read it lately? I urge you to do so.
Are you able with an earnest heart to say verse 4 (or 5 depending on your translation) and mean it?
“For, ADONAI, what you do makes me happy;
I take joy in what your hands have made,”
Does GOD make you happy?
I mean I know it is His Will to make us Holy; but does He also make you happy?
Do you have aught against Him?
Has He allowed some hurts into your life that brought you to a place of doubt; doubting His love for you and even His Goodness?
Psalm 92 also reads this way:
“How great are your deeds, ADONAI!
How very deep your thoughts!”
Are you displeased with His Deeds? (See Psalm 145: 17-18)
Some years ago these two verses saved my sanity and my trust in Him.
Hurts happen. Perhaps even more often than we can admit to ourselves.
But there is GREAT NEWS — He forgives. He restores. He makes new over and over when we ask.
“15(14) Even in old age they will be vigorous, still full of sap, still bearing fruit,
16 (15) proclaiming that ADONAI is upright, my Rock, in whom there is no wrong.”
Is that your testimony?
If we with an open and honest heart will always say He is my Rock, in whom there is no wrong, I think our sap will be full and our fruit delicious even when we are older than I am now. 🙂
What do you say?
