Psalm 89 – Light and Shade 

This Psalm was going really well. For the first two thirds if not three quarters here was another great anthem of praise to the greatness of God.

Then seemingly out of nowhere it goes switching into wondering why God has not followed up His greatness in the life of the Psalmist. By the end of the Psalm there is sufficient reason to be grateful to God. Yet the switch is still remarkable.

Praising God is something done at the beginning and end of the Psalm, but that remarkable switch expresses well how engaging with God is real relationship is about light and shade. Is about trust and questions why. It is about acknowledging God in all that He is and still querying the situtions you wallk through in life as you wait on Him to carry you through.

For His Name’s Sake

Shalom
