Cheer My Soul

today's reading.
Psalm 94:12-23 Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O LORD, and whom you teach out of your law...
Psalms 94:12-23

Psalms 94:12-23think about it.
How is the Lord's discipline a blessing (94:12-15)? How would this change your perspective on God's work in your life? What does the Lord do for you when you're under attack? How have you seen this work out?

I appreciate how Psalm 94:12-23 openly recognizes that the Christian life is not a cake walk. Life is….life, and it can be tough. But as a follower of Christ, our circumstances don't have to dictate our lives because God is in control and He is our helper and our consoler. That means that we can have joy regardless of what's going on in, and around, our lives. "When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul" (vs. 19).

Think about how the Lord has helped and consoled you in the past and take a moment to thank Him. Then, let's consider this: how do we make sure we're fully relying on God as the controller of all things, and also leaning on Him to be our helper, comforter and consoler? Tami W.
