Today in my Bible reading I was reminded of the repeated refrain of Psalms 42-43… The Psalmist engages in “self-talk” as he struggles with discouragement, despondency and a season of depression… He asks himself, “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? – [And then as someone who trusts the Lord he answers himself from his own faith and confidence in God…] Hope in God! For I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God!” (Psalm 42:5, 11 and 43:5 ESV)
During my “prayer run” today as I reflected on those words A 4-FOLD STRATEGY came to mind… I offer it to anyone today who is experiencing the feelings and situation of the Psalmist…
HEAR O God!
HEED my cry!
Hey, I’m confident He’ll do it – HE’LL HEAR, HEED AND HELP… OH, HALLELUJAH!!!
