We all have minutes when we feel debilitate by life’s conditions [ DURING HARD TIMES ]. Our friends and family may attempt to relieve our burden or lift our spirits, yet tragically, their endeavors can miss the mark. We keep thinking about whether we will at any point rise up out of the present difficult circumstance with our satisfaction unblemished.

Why have you agitated me, my soul? And why have you perplexed me? Look for God, because I shall again praise him, The Savior of my entire being, and my God.— Psalm 42:11

Yet, I will continue expecting your assistance; I will applaud you to an ever increasing extent. — Psalm 71:14 (NLT)

It’s great to realize that our Father welcomes us to trust in him, to share our sentiments really in petition. He really focuses on us and comprehends our requirements and shortcomings. We can gravitate toward to him by singing songs or psalms, or considering his decency and praising him. Obviously, there are times when this may appear to be too troublesome, yet in any event, murmuring a petition of recognition can introduce a feeling of freedom and harmony.


The psalmist in Psalm 42 inquiries the justification his despondency; at that point he educates himself to trust in God. The articulation, “I will in any case applaud him” means an inward assurance and a front aligned standpoint. He relentlessly, persistently, and over and again commends the Lord. This permits him to zero in on God his Savior, the One who will bring liberation and triumph. To have trust in God is to stand by hopefully for him. Since he is devoted to help, we can realize that we will commend him once more. This gives us at any rate a dream of ourselves celebrating later on.

Commending God in the tough situations doesn’t limit or keep weight from getting heart. All things considered, it diverts our attention on what god’s identity is. He won’t ever change. He guaranteed never to leave or surrender his kids, so we can rely on his essence, in any event, when our feelings can’t affirm it. He is close to the despondent (Psalm 34:18).

Commendation IS POSSIBLE

There have been times when I’ve thought, “I’ll never be empowered.” Yet when I start to help myself to remember His kindness and goodness, the mists scatter. Presently this doesn’t imply that those issues will out of nowhere vanish or that it will be going great from this point forward, yet it implies that my face will light up again and the heaviness of the weight will diminish. I’ll have the option to encounter the delight of the Lord amidst life’s tempests and difficulties.

It is feasible to applaud the Lord in difficulty. In one sense, it’s a decision, not an inclination. It turns into a sort of close to home call to war. In any event, when our run has eased back to a creep and our yell has subsided to a cry — we can look out for our great Father with wild assumption. He is steadfast and valid. In the event that we can’t commend him for our conditions, we can applaud him despite them.

Eventually, the Lord mends the bothered soul. The Holy Spirit makes our hearts flood with trust. He turns the light on where once there was just dimness. There is power in the progression of the Spirit! Realizing he’ll meet us when we are most broken is the excellent truth of carrying on with the plentiful life.

At the point when we consider acclaim, it might assist with noticing that this incorporates thanksgiving, commending God, admitting confidence, and a huge swath of venerating articulations. I think the adversary realizes that as long as we trust that all that will arrange before we acclaim the Lord, we’ll stay stuck significantly more than we need to. We can in any case applaud him since he’s commendable. We can in any case adulate him for the Cross and the Resurrection.

Genuine euphoria and harmony don’t start with us, however come to us as the endowments and product of God’s elegance. May we generally spill out our stinging hearts to him in petition, and afterward reaffirm: “I’m actually going to commend him. I have trust, he is dedicated to help, and he is my God! If I get everything, with an answer or without one, ‘I will favor the Lord consistently — his acclaim will persistently be in my mouth’ (Psalm 34:1).”
