Why so downcast?

Posted by appolus on February 20, 2022

Psa 42:5  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.

Many know the depths of despair. Many have been touched by a creeping darkness that threatens to overwhelm your soul and pull you downward. On such an occasion in my life the Lord spoke directly into the darkness and pierced it with this Scripture. He asked me a rhetorical question “why so downcast Frank, put your hope in me for you will yet praise me.” It struck me to my core. My tears had been my food day and night and my soul longed to be away from that place. And there, in a moment of time, My Lord came to me in the depths of my soul and lifted up the head that hung low. He dried my tears and I was like the deer that had panted for the water brooks and found it and found therein the waters of life that revived my soul.

If the waves and the billows of the deep are washing over you, know this brothers and sisters, they shall not drown you. You shall cry out to the Lord your God in the days of your distress and He will command His lovingkindness to envelope you through the day and in the night His song will keep you as you sleep. Many will say in the depths of your distress “where is her God now, where is his God when he needs Him.”And the answer that they will not be able to see is that He is in the very depths of your heart, keeping you and holding your head above the waters as you go through them.  When they take their eyes off your situation and look upon your face, they will see the peace of our Lord. For out of the heart that belongs to God, shines the beauty of holiness that overcomes the darkness.
