Psalm 33:20 Our soul waits for Yahveh; he is our help and shield.
Psalm 33:21 Our hearts are happy in him because we trust in his holy name.
Psalm 33:22 May your covenant faithfulness rest on us, Yahveh, because we put our hope in you.
Whenever we worship God, we are declaring to the watching world that we have put our hope in him. We also expect his covenant faithfulness to protect us because it rests on those who acknowledge his existence and worth.
That kind of faith produces happy hearts. Should anything challenge that happiness, we can be assure that it will not survive the onslaught of God’s protection. So we will wait to see what he does.
Thank you Lord, for being our help and shield.
