Life is undeniably difficult. It can feel unbearable at times. How often our souls are troubled. How often they are vexed beyond the ability to physically, or mentally, rest. But Psalm 94 assures believers that God can always be our counsel, our assurance. But how much will we surrender to the Lord? How much faith will we yield? There is a tug-of-war present. Part of us wants to go all-in with obedience, and submission. But part of us wants to try and go it alone. May it always be faith, obedience, and submission. Then, our souls can find consolation in the Lord, even as anxious thoughts multiply within us.
Psalm 94:19 “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” (NIV)
