Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you.

– Psalm 86:4 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,

Notice how the Psalmist asks God to bring joy to him. Even though he is feeling overwhelmed, he knows where joy can be found-in the presence of God. Yet this is not a happy experience at first; he must lift up his soul to God in order to get it. The discipline of seeking after God when our hearts are heavy is a necessary skill if we expect to walk in a joy that is beyond our circumstances.
