Lord, You have restored me. Your anger is just temporary, your favor is forever.
You turned my sorrow into joy!
You rejected us and we are discouraged. You didn't go with us to battle, but You spoke that these nations are Yours. Help us, for we can succeed with You.
How this is about Jesus
- God "brought up [His] soul from Sheol" (30:3).
- His agony in Gethsemane and punishment at Calvary was for a moment compared to the eternal glory and reward now given Him.
- 60 - God promised Jesus the nations (Psalm 2), like David, and so He went out and fought.
Even King David suffered trying times, discouragement, military losses. Notice what He does, how He talks to God in those times, and follow in his footsteps.
"Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning" - Psalm 30:5.
