When Life Turns Against You
When life turns against you, remember our times are in His hands.
God promises to strengthen us even when we our weak because He is our ‘rock’ (vs. 1-2)
God promises to protect and guide us for His name’s sake (vs. 3-5)
God’s steadfast love never ends, because He is always with us (vs. 6-8)
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
31:1 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
in your righteousness deliver me!
2 Incline your ear to me;
rescue me speedily!
Be a rock of refuge for me,
a strong fortress to save me!
3 For you are my rock and my fortress;
and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me;
4 you take me out of the net they have hidden for me,
for you are my refuge.
5 Into your hand I commit my spirit;
you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.
6 I hate those who pay regard to worthless idols,
but I trust in the Lord.
7 I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love,
because you have seen my affliction;
you have known the distress of my soul,
8 and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;
you have set my feet in a broad place. (ESV)
