How to Worship in Hard Times [Psalms 59:16 Daily Devotional]
“But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.”
The psalmist is writing about his response to the goodness of God. Really, the only response to that is worship. The psalmist sings of God’s strength and love because of all the things God has done for them, even in times of trouble. Primarily, the author of this verse is writing about how Lord provides protection, so the natural response to that protection is worship.
This verse is an application of responding to God. The Lord is with us through all our times of trouble, not just the good times. Because of that, we can sing of his goodness, love, and strength. No matter what and in all things, he’ll continue to provide that protection for us. Simply sing to him and engage in corporate worship at your local church. You can also worship God by serving his people.
Father, thank you for your strength and protection. Help me recognize you in my trials. Give me the ability to sing to you and worship you even when it’s hard. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
