“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand ... The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands” (Psalm 138:7-8).
Despite all the troubles that surround David, he expresses confidence that God will continue to sustain him through them. David does not say that troubles won’t come, or that God will immediately cause them to disappear. No, he has a deeper trust in God’s sovereign purposes and rests his hope on the sure truth that God will bring His purposes for David to perfect fulfilment.
The New Testament uses similar language when it describes our transformation into Christlikeness. The end result is sure, but the means to that end are not fully revealed to us, that we might trust Him in all things.
May the Lord perfect that which concerns you, and may you know his reviving touch at this time.
Yours in our Lord Jesus Christ,
