Why And Why Not
Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It contains truth… and real people, saying real things. Psalms 42:11 – Why are you downcast O my soul, why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him. When your soul is cast down, when your emotions are feeling low, there are two things you can choose to do. Put your hope in God, and Praise Him yet (even though, right now). Put your hope, and Praise – both of these things you do with your mouth. Your mouth will either speak downcast, or speak hope and praise. You will either stay there, or rise from there. These two things… you will do them, or you will not do them. You will do what David said and did, or you will not. If you put your hope in God, your hope will rise, if you Praise Him, He will rise, not only in your eyes, but He will rise up off of His throne and come and inhabit your praise. He will live in it, and bring you to life! If you do not do these two things, your soul will remain cast down, downcast. Why? Good question, why are you downcast, O my soul? Why be downcast? Why not rise? Why be downcast when you can hope and praise. When you are feeling low, hope and praise. When something is disturbing you, whether something you said or did, or something others said or did, or something the devil said, or when something bad could or did happen… Why be downcast? Why not rise! Simply obey what God said. Do these two things - and He will rise - and so will you. He has healing in His wings, healing for your soul and spirit. Why be downcast, why not rise? Praying that you will put your hope in God, with your words, that you will praise Him for his loving kindness and His excellent greatness. Just remember what He has done! Put your Hope in God, and put your Praise on Him, and He will rise, and you will rise with Him.
Love you all,
