“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
Psalm 42:5 NIV
in the course of a day’s time it is so easy to get out of spiritual alignment and become consumed in our minds and emotions with the challenges we face. Here David is speaking directly to his soul – that is his mind, his will, and his emotions. In the midst of his discouragement, David is telling his soul to get back in alignment with God for God alone is our hope. I will yet praise Him for He is my Savior and my God.
Just maybe you have gotten out of alignment. You’ve allowed the circumstances and challenges of the day to consume you. Take action. Get back into alignment. Put your trust and your hope in God.
