Psalm 43

43       Lamentation / Wisdom / (Korah)

            God is My Hope!

            5 Why are you in despair, O my soul?

            And why are you disturbed within me?

            Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,

            The help of my countenance and my God.

·         [W]here our cause is good, our Judge becomes our Advocate and pleads our cause. When the Lord is on our side, it cannot go ill with us.

·         Live in sight of the Cross.

·         If seasons of terrible depression come, no strange thing has happened to us. The same came to the author of this Psalm. A horror of great darkness once fell on Abraham himself.

·         The more terrible the storm, the more necessary is the anchor. Hope in God (Hebrews 6:19).
