Read Psalm 71
How many times the Psalmist talks about the goodness of God! He just can’t keep quiet about the Lord. Praises seem to flood his heart as he reflects on the mighty deeds of God, His sovereignty and His faithfulness.
By the end of the Psalm, joy begins to fill his heart and he says, “My lips will shout for joy, when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed.”
When we feel depressed and hopeless, let’s recount what the Lord had done for us and praise Him. Like the Psalmist we too will overflow with joy.
