Someone needs to hear this summarized message of Psalm 30 today! … “With the Lord involved there is always HOPE for tomorrow!!!” (My personal paraphrase/summary of the Psalm).
Now here’s a taste of what the Psalm says…
“I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. O LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
“Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
“As for me, I said in my prosperity, ‘I shall never be moved.’ … You hid your face; I was dismayed!
“To you, O LORD, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: ‘What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me! O LORD, be my helper!’
“But you have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!” (From Psalm 30 ESV)
One more time – it’s true! … “With the Lord there is always HOPE for tomorrow!”
