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).
