Psalms Challenge, Psalm 9

Posted by Picasa

1.I will give you praise, O Lord, with all my heart; I will make clear all the wonder of your works.
2 I will be glad and have delight in you: I will make a song of praise to your name, O Most High.

9 The Lord will be a high tower for those who are crushed down, a high tower in times of trouble;

10 And those who have knowledge of your name will put their faith in you; because you, Lord, have ever given your help to those who were waiting for you.
11 Make songs of praise to the Lord, whose house is in Zion: make his doings clear to the people.

In spite of all his troubles and misfortunes, David kept praising God. Once there was a major disaster in the Netherlands. Somebody asked a man:"so where is your God now?"
His answer was :"There he is", pointing at a rescue worker helping the wounded people where and whenever he could.

A good point you make about David.

A strong tower and a wise anecdote.

A wonderfully lyrical psalm there.
The answer to 'where is your god now'
was a brilliant answer

Thanks for the reminder that it is God working through the efforts of people such as the rescue worker.
