Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

– Psalm 43:5 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

It is one thing to praise God when things are going well, but to focus on heaven when things fall apart brings a challenge that only a heart that is after God can fulfill. The Psalmist reminds us that praise is not conditioned upon our circumstances. It is so easy to try to use techniques with the underlying intent of getting something back. But God will test our hearts and, in his mercy, purify our motives to the point that our only agenda is to know Him. Make a decision to praise God in ALL things.
