My heart is confident in You, O God; my heart is confident. No wonder I can sing Your praises! – (Psalm 57:7, NLT)
God, I am ready, heart and soul, to sing songs of praise. – (Psalm 57:7, ERV)
O God, my heart is quiet and confident. No wonder I can sing Your praises! – (Psalm 57:7, TLB)
Because I know the character and faithfulness of God, I am confident in who He is and able to praise Him in all things and at all times. Even when my heart is heavy, weary or worn, I have reason to sing praise, for my hope is not held in the here and now, but rather rests in what is yet to come. May we ever remain confident in the truth of who God is, and how He is for us, even when that which surrounds us is not.
Let my confidence,
Forever be found;
In You, O my God,
Where all grace abounds.
My heart can’t contain,
Your glorious ways;
All I know to do,
Is offer You praise.
For my heart must sing,
Of all that You are;
My light, life and hope,
O Great Morning Star.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can be confident in You, no matter what is going on in or around us. Thank You that we always have reason to sing songs of praise unto You. Thank You that we can hold fast to the truth and trust You to be God. Forgive us for attempting to fill that role ourselves, or for neglecting to seek You in our storms. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would rest assured in confidence in who You are and how You love. Help us to love others in such a way, that they too would see Your character through how we conduct our lives. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we confidently sing Your praises in all things and at all times. Amen.
