Psalms 40:5

imag0115

Lord my God, You have done many things —

Your wonderful works and Your plans for us;

none can compare with You.

If I were to report and speak of them,

they are more than can be told.

Are you discouraged?

When the LORD brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,130103025622-hopeless-discouraged-jobs-street-sign-tablet-large

it was like a dream! . . .

Restore our fortunes, LORD,

as streams renew the desert.

Those who plant in tears

will harvest with shouts of joy.

They weep as they go to plant their seed,

but they sing as they return with the harvest.”

Psalm 126:1, 4–6

Encouragement for today

Are you discouraged? Have things gotten worse for you, rather than better? Pray this prayer, claim the promise of these verses, and take heart. Just as the Jewish exiles had lost hope but finally found themselves returning to Jerusalem, so God will bring you back to “Jerusalem.” It may take a while … it may take until heaven. But sooner or later, one way or another, you will be filled with joy and your fortunes will be restored. Count on it! Imagine it now. Wait for it expectantly and hopefully, and pray as you wait.
