Psalm 9:7-14 (NASB)
Psalm 9 giving thanks in the midst of sorrow or heartache. The Lord knows your pain he knows what you’re going through – the good times and the bad – even in the not so good like the psalmist it is possible to “tell of all your (God’s) wonders”.
In the midst of everything remember one thing: the Lord is forever! The word abides is used (v7) – where today are you abiding? Are you dwelling on your issues, hurts or pain? Jesus said That we should remain in Him (abide with). It reminds me of a line in an old chorus “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in his wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light if His fullness and grace”
As you read this psalm, be encouraged consider what are you abiding with? Is it in lifes circumstances or hassles? Instead abide in Christ because it is in abiding we learn to trust and allow our focus to change!
