I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
3 When my enemies turn back,
They shall fall and perish at Your presence.
4 For You have maintained my right and my cause;
You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.
5 You have rebuked the [b]nations,
You have destroyed the wicked;
You have blotted out their name forever and ever.
6 O enemy, destructions are finished forever!
And you have destroyed cities;
Even their memory has perished.
7 But the Lord shall endure forever;
He has prepared His throne for judgment.
8 He shall judge the world in righteousness,
And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.
9 The Lord also will be a refuge[c] for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble.
10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;
For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
11 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion!
Declare His deeds among the people.
12 When He avenges blood, He remembers them;
He does not forget the cry of the [d]humble.
13 Have mercy on me, O Lord!
Consider my trouble from those who hate me,
You who lift me up from the gates of death,
14 That I may tell of all Your praise
In the gates of [e]the daughter of Zion.
I will rejoice in Your salvation.
15 The [f]nations have sunk down in the pit which they made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.
16 The Lord is known by the judgment He executes;
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell,
And all the [h]nations that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten;
The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.
This psalm is among the group of psalms that speak about the human condition and what God does in and through us when we cry out to Him. It isn't every day that you might get to read a psalm but rest assured that this one will speak to your human condition, your need for God, what God does for those who are faithful to Him, and much more.
Don't we serve a great God?
I can't tell you how many times in my life, when all the chips were down that God came through for me and helped me. There was one time when I thought that I would be evicted from my apartment, and I found myself praying all night because everything was out of my control.
Have you ever felt like that? Like everything was out of your control? Well, I sure did. But, like many human ordeals go, God came through for me in high fashion.
A huge snowstorm came and stopped the eviction. I was later able to acquire the funds needed to pay rent and remain in my apartment.
But, had it not been for God I would have been down and out but God came through for me and He will for you as you put your trust in Him.
Our prayer for you is that as you read these Chapters that the Lord will speak to your heart and give you the reassurance and hope that you need to keep on pressing through, not looking at how the wicked maa seemingly prosper, until God brings you to the place He promised you.
