Psalm 70:4 – Verse of the Day 4/24/13
Psalm 70 is a very short Psalm and almost identical to the final verses of Psalm 40. In Psalm 40 the Psalmist’s confidence that God will save him in the present is rooted in God’s faithfulness in the past. Here in Psalm 70 the Psalmist merely expresses that confidence in God’s faithfulness in its most simple form. Just as he himself relies upon God and rejoices in Him, he expresses hope that others will seek God and do the same.
It is simple to say that we should rejoice and be glad in God, but our hearts do not always respond this way. Spend some time consciously rejoicing for your salvation. Regardless of whether you feel happy at this moment in time, ask God to make you glad in Him.
