This heading is part of a popular song title of yesteryear, Don't Worry, Be Happy. In light of recent happenings in America and around the world we can't be happy, but we can certainly not worry if our eyes are fixed on God.
Psalm 42: 5, 11 and 43: 5 say, "Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance." KJV
The AMP version says, Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become restless and disturbed within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall again praise Him For the help of His presence.
The ERV version: Why am I so sad? Why am I so upset? I tell myself, “Wait for God’s help!
You will again be able to praise him, your God, the one who will save
The NIV version: 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.
Jesus Himself said, "When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” (Luke 21: 28).
The only way we can survive this terrible period we are going through is to trust in the Lord, stay close to Him, study His Word, and don't worry.
My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost loved ones and those who were injured in this latest tragedy. God has not forgotten you.
