Sometimes we have to lose everything before we finally “count on the Lord.” The bereaved, the homeless, the jobless, the single mom, the parent of the prodigal and whoever has come to the end of their own wisdom and resource, these are those who learn that nothing in this world is dependable. Don’t waste the pain. Learn to depend on God and to put your “hope in his word.” When all else fails, God is there.

The Psalmist wrote this to be sung while climbing the steps to the temple in Jerusalem. A song of ascent for worshipers of YHWH (Yahweh). Perhaps we should have such songs to sing as we go to church, then we would bring our worship into the house with us. I’m not counting on my credit card, my job, my government, even my preacher… I’m counting on the Lord! I know He will come through for me!

The Psalmist counted/depended on the Lord. He was banking on God and His Word. On what/whom do you depend? What is the source of your hope? We may not know what the future holds, but we can know Who holds the future!
