Psalm 94:19 When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
The psalmist shares the reality that the cares of life have a tendency to get overwhelming and stressful. He then shares that his soul is uplifted by the comfort and consolation of God.
#1. Everybody has a bad day and sometimes life gets the best of them.
In my life I have a hard time accepting the fact that my soul can get overwhelmed. The pressures of life, the stresses of this world can get me down. It is good to know that I am not alone. I am usually in a great mood and above my circumstances, but sometimes life sneaks up on me.
#2 Our Soul needs cheering
Getting down and even depressed is not incurable. We don’t have to stay down. We shouldn’t stay down.
#3. God’s comfort is the best medicine.
I can go a lot of places to try to cheer myself up but the best place is the presence of God. His love and comfort provides what I need to get out of the funk.
Thank you for lifting me up when I am down. Thank you that being down doesn’t mean being out. Thank you for a deep love that reaches down and pulls me up.
