Psalm 116: Deeper still…
“Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yes, our God is merciful. The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.” –verses 5-7
Gracious is the Lord. When we feel low, this reminder must be dripping from our lips over and over until the salvation comes. In the midst of the valley, when the shadow of death or disappointment looms long before us, we must remember the One casting the light to make that shadow. We must remember His mercy.
For when His salvation comes, if we seek for the glimpse of light, we will see it ever so much sooner than if we only focus on the current shadow.
Gracious is the Lord.
