“Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you” (Psalm 33:22, ESV).

            Having observed the power of God the Creator (vv.1-9) and the sovereignty of God over the wicked and the righteous (vv.10-19)—a matter of judgment upon the wicked, but of salvation for those who love the Lord—the psalmist completes Psalm 33 with a declaration of trust and dependence upon the Lord (vv.20-22).  God is our hope, and we rest ourselves in His compassion and mighty power to save.

            Take refuge in the steadfast love of the Lord.  In trouble, in temptation, in failure and danger, this is our hope—the wondrous compassion of God.  God’s love is steadfast, faithful, unfailing; He has compassion on those who call upon Him, and lifts up the weak and the brokenhearted.  Rely today on the Lord, who is kind, and able to save
