Morning all! Ps 53.6 says “Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.”
Believing the best is yet to come means we have to shift our focus away from the now and on to the future. At the point this Psalm was written, everything was going wrong for Israel. They were being oppressed, persecuted and just couldn’t catch a break. It must have felt like everything was falling apart and although they knew God, they hadn’t been rescued from their torment… yet. All they could do was believe that better days were coming and that God would somehow turn the very thing that brought their tears into a testimony they’d rejoice over. The same is true for us. During the moments when we feel like we’re about to hit rock bottom or we’re struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel, we need to know that God will restore our fortunes. How and when He’ll do it isn’t for us to worry about as long as we know that somehow, someday it’ll happen. God instructs us to be glad as we wait for Him to make His miracle move because that’s the kind of faith that’s pleasing to Him. Let’s be mindful to stop letting the weight of our present pull us down as we rest in the knowledge that it’s going to get better!
