All I had to do was read the first line and I was done for…I could relate so much to this psalm…yes, I am stuck in the psalms this week…a very good place to be.
So many of you that I walk closely with have or are experiencing life crashes…but remember that God is there and we will all be having a parade waving our banners as we jointly celebrate the victories yet to come…those ones that are promised to us who will believe, wait and hope.
Join hands with me and keep walking out this journey!! God’s word says that one day we will raise the roof…I have been following an exercise program for walking and a couple days a week I do a “roof raising” workout…it leaves me sweaty and breathless but also exhilarated because at some point I didn’t think I can continue because the intensity and pace is so high but once I have figuratively crossed the finish line, I feel great that I kept moving and didn’t quit…I can’t wait to raise the roof celebrating all that our God has done…won’t you come with me?!
” God answer you on the day you crash, The name God-of Jacob put you out of harm’s reach,
Send reinforcements from Holy Hill,
Dispatch from Zion fresh supplies,
Exclaim over your offerings,
Celebrate your sacrifices,
Give you what your heart desires,
Accomplish your plans.
When you win, we plan to raise the roof
and lead the parade with our banners.
May all your wishes come true!
That clinches it—help’s coming,
an answer’s on the way,
everything’s going to work out.
See those people polishing their chariots,
and those others grooming their horses?
But we’re making garlands for God our God.
The chariots will rust,
those horses pull up lame—
and we’ll be on our feet, standing tall.
Make the king a winner, God;
the day we call, give us your answer.”
