21 But you, Sovereign Lord, help me for your name’s sake; out of the goodness of your love, deliver me.
22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
23 I fade away like an evening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust.
24 My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt.
25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads. Psalm 199:21-25
David ended this psalm with words of exhortation and encouragement. He knew where his help and sufficiency lay, He also knew that God was – and still is – sovereign in the world.
A week ago I was sitting on a beach watching the waves move in and out.
Nothing to boast about.
Compared to the massive volume of water in one ocean, we are very very small. And this a work of God’s creation! Think about that for a second.
It’s comforting to know that we can rely on Christ for our comfort, our encouragement, and our strength. If we were so inclined, there is a lot in this world we could worry and fret over.
But we don’t need to.
