Psalm 108 begins “My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul.” There is so much in life that we do not know, and that we do not understand. The “why” questions often plague our minds. An image that is sometimes used in Scripture is that of the movement of the sea. One floating adrift has nothing solid on which to cling. But that is why the expression in Psalm 108 is important for us. Our solid hold is with the Lord. Beyond the questions, beyond the trials, beyond all that is senseless in a broken world is the rock of Christ. It is upon Him that we set our hearts. He will not fail. The psalmist clearly sees the problems, but can end by saying, “for the help of man is worthless. With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.” The Lord does give us a lot of joy in life, but as we look at the current political and world situation there is a lot of confusion. It is a troubled sea. But we say again with the Psalmist, My heart is steadfast, O God. My heart is steadfast.
