A Devotional Thought on Psalm 30
Deliverance. Beautiful deliverance. David certainly was a man who knew his share of sorrows, and through his words expressing his trials and triumphs we see also God’s deliverance for us. This psalm describes this deliverance most beautifully: “You, LORD, brought me up from the realm of the dead…his favor lasts a lifetime…weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” And, my personal favorite: “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.” This is what God does in the lives of every one of his people, me included. Certainly God’s greatest deliverance is eternally from sin, death, and the devil through Christ – but also that deliverance exists here and now. Literally, every morning brings rejoicing for the believer who knows his God’s compassionate hand is at work in his life. For this truly I will praise the LORD’s name forever.
