David’s life is an example to the fact that God doesn’t always change your situation, but He does have all that it takes to help you through the hard times. Are you going through tough places and difficult times right now? I encourage you to read the words of David. Can you see him dancing and rejoicing over the incredible thought that God can meet all of his needs and provides whatever it takes to get through each day. Ask God to give you that same spirit of joy as you realize His sufficiency to meet your every need. And then as David did, remind yourself to praise the Lord.
Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)
1Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
