Psalm 59:16-17 (JDV)

Psalm 59:16 But I will sing of your strength and will joyfully proclaim your covenant faithfulness in the morning, because you have been a stronghold for me, a refuge in my day of trouble.
Psalm 59:17 To you, my strength, I sing praises, because God is my stronghold – my faithful God.


Days of trouble are not what distinguishes Christians from non-Christians. Both have days of trouble. Our Adversary the devil likes to taunt us when we experience those days of trouble. But everyone experiences them. The difference for the Christian is the mornings after the days of trouble. Peace reigns in our hearts during the days of trouble, and praising God for his faithful protection is what we do afterwards.

Lord, thank you for the afterwards.
