Judge me, O GOD, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man. For Thou art the GOD of my strength: why dost Thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? O send out Thy light and Thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Thy holy hill, and to Thy tabernacles. Then will I go unto the altar of GOD, unto GOD my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise Thee, O GOD my GOD. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in GOD: for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my countenance, and my GOD. (Psalms 43:1-5)
We praise Him for His goodness to His children. We carry the light of the Gospel and the Truth of His Word into the darkness, and shout for joy for the hope we have in Christ. We ought not be cast down, or broken hearted in this world, for we are not of this world, we are children of the King.
This sinful and broken world may be dying all around us, and that should spur us on and burden us for those around us who are without Christ, and without Hope in GOD. We must not grow weary in the work of the Lord for we have the words of Life. We have the Good News of Jesus Christ and His finished work on the Cross of Calvary for our sIn. We must shout the Gospel from the rooftops, and declare it to the nations.
Jesus is GOD, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and He loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. He is King of Kings and He calls you to surrender to Him on His terms and receive by faith in Him a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Believe Him today, and let Him be in your life what He is, Lord of all.
