On Wednesday evenings at our church, we’ve been doing a series called, “A Summer In The Psalms.” One thing that I have found in so many of the Psalms, is that the Psalmist would begin dwelling on his most pressing problems. He might even have a tone of hopelessness, at first, but then, he would begin reminding himself of God’s sovereign goodness. As the Psalmist would talk to himself about who God is, and how God is, you can see the tone of the Psalm take on a change. The Psalmist would begin making statements of commitment to God, then the Psalm would end with the Psalmist voicing his praise to God. No one is exempt from troubles, but those who know the Lord, and who know His word, never have to sorrow in any matter, as others who have no hope. We have a strong hope and a sure hope. God help us to follow the pattern of the Psalmist, it is the pattern for sound thinking.
