But God

Psalm 143:1-12

In our lifetimes, we will face seasons of grief and distress. None of us is exempt. A few years ago, I discovered an overcoming truth during such a season in my own life. The enemy sought to destroy our family in such a devastating way that pressing darkness threatened to overpower me. I cried to the Lord like David in Psalm 143 and tenaciously clung to the Lord.

One morning while reading Ephesians 2, these words from the fourth verse stood out: “God, who is rich in mercy.” I literally felt light flooding my heart with this realization: No matter the darkness, But God! Despite the deep sorrow, But God! Beyond any troubling circumstance, But God!

The Lord heard my prayers for mercy and relief, and His faithful lovingkindness strengthened me.

Let us choose to rejoice in our faithful Lord. Even when the gloom of loss envelops us, Those looming waves and deafening winds may signal defeat: but God!
