“I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love, because you have seen my affliction; you have known the distress of my soul, and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy; you have set my feet in a broad place” (Psalm 31:7-8, ESV).
These verses follow David’s declaration in verse 6 that he is loyal to God, and has enmity towards idolaters. The people of God trust in God, and find the Lord faithful to His own. Thus the emphasis follows naturally upon God’s “steadfast love” and faithfulness. He redeems His people from danger, and gives them peace.
God sees the suffering of His people. God cares for His children, and lifts them up in His way, in His time. When you are bearing a heavy load, lift up your soul to the Lord; entrust your cares to Him, and wait for His deliverance. May the redeeming love of God Most High bless His people with peace.
