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, GraceNYC.org

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.
