Praising God through trials. Yes……just do it. No explanations…..just do it. That’s all.
In the following Psalm, I will replace the “the LORD” with “Yahweh” and “God” with “Elohim”.
Psalm 30 (New King James Version edited by me)
A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the house of David.
1 I will extol You, O YAHWEH, for You have lifted me up,
And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
2 O YAHWEH my Elohim, I cried out to You,
And You healed me.
3 O YAHWEH, You brought my soul up from the grave;
You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to YAHWEH, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.
6 Now in my prosperity I said,
“I shall never be moved.”
7 YAHWEH by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong;
You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
8 I cried out to You, O YAHWEH;
And to YAHWEH I made supplication:
9 “What profit is there in my blood,
When I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise You?
Will it declare Your truth?
10 Hear, O YAHWEH, and have mercy on me;
YAHWEH, be my helper!”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O YAHWEH my Elohim, I will give thanks to You forever.
