Psalm 43 – Breakthrough – #103

Today I’m sharing my 103rd verse, Psalm 43:5. The Psalmist in this Psalm goes from a state of depression to a proclamation of praise.The Passion translation of Psalm 43:5 says, “Then I will say to my soul, don’t be discouraged, don’t be disturbed, For I fully expect my Savior-God to break through for me. Then I’ll have plenty of reasons to praise him all over again. Yes, living before his face is my saving grace.”

In the 5th verse, the psalmist didn’t give up, but he challenged what he was feeling. “Why are you downcast, O my soul?”, he asked. Can you relate to the psalmist? Have you been wondering why you are discouraged and why your heart is so sad? Instead of dwelling in it, speak to your soul and command all fear, discouragement, and disturbance to be gone. Speak the life and promises of God over your circumstances. When you do you will be filled with hope and encouragement.

The psalmist’s circumstances hadn’t changed, but throughout the Psalm his attitude had. Instead of putting his hope in his circumstances, he put his hope in God. He fully expected that the Lord would break through for Him, which would lead him to praise God. Do you have that same expectancy? Do you believe and know that God will break through for you?

Put your hope in God and continue to praise Him. Know that He is the God of abundance and He wants to answer your prayers and see break through happen in every area of your life!

    You know that is the best thing about the Psalms. The author often begins stating his problems or feelings but often ends with praise to the Lord.

    We just taught a similar lesson in our Sunday school class to the kids. Funny thing is it’s always what our lesson is for them that I also need the reminder of 🙂

    It takes a lot of time to get close enough to God to really trust in Him. I remember a time when I had no idea what it meant to “give it to God” ………. isnt it wonderful to know that everything is in God’s timing 🙂

    Putting our faith in God sounds like such a small, possibly insignificant step in growing in our faith, and yet it is the key step. We let go of our circumstances and hand to God all in that small step.

    Thank you for sharing this message.

    So good Caroline! I definitely can relate to that Psalm. I find I have to CHOOSE joy and speak thankfulness so often even when I don’t feel like it! Then the Lord restores my joy…he’s so faithful.

    Your wonderful words here reminded me of the book we are reading in our family worship time each day. You would LOVE this book. Perhaps you have read it. It is by Charles Capps, and it is called, “God’s Creative Power”. It is truly one of the most amazing books I have ever read, next to the Bible. I was really, really going though a physical battle one day, and Zach and I were shopping in the Goodwill store. The enemy was torturing my mind and making me so fearful and depressed. I stood there in that store, BEGGING God to give me SOMETHING to show me that I was going to be okay and to give me hope. I kid you not. I looked ahead of me, and the clerks had just brought out a cart of “new” stuff that had recently been donated, and instantly my eyes fell on this little brown book with gold-edged pages. I was drawn to it like a magnet, so, I went to pick it up, and it was this book I am telling you about!! Oh, my word. I could NEVER tell you how much this book has helped me over the past several years. It is all about the importance of our words and how our health and bodies and everything about us are affected by the things that come out of our mouths. He gives tons of Scriptures that are so applicable. If you ever come across this book, it is SO worth your money and time. YES, my friend, God is working on your own, personal breakthrough!!!! When it breaks forth, you will stand amazed!!! Hold fast, and know that it is coming!!! 🙂

    It’s so good to be reminded that He is a God of abundance. He doesn’t want us to just survive this life, He wants us to live it abundantly.

    Those pesky attitudes can cause all sorts of trouble. I think David’s experience mirrors many of ours. If we talk to our Heavenly Father, He will change our attitude as we bask in His presence.

    Oh yes, how we decide to look at things will have a big impact on our life…and those around us.
