Daily Bible Podcast Day 133 – 2 Samuel 24, 1 Chronicles 21, Psalm 30, 1 Thessalonians 2

March 13, 2013 in Podcasts by Nathan


“Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.” ~Psalm 30:4-5

David experienced God’s rebuke. God’s punishments were severe on David and Israel in a few instances.

I am not likely to suffer consequences direct from God in the way that David did. Any punishment that I endure is likely the indirect result of my sin. Even so, if I turn from my sin as David did, God’s favor can rest on me for my lifetime.

Father, sometimes the “night” of my sorrow feels long. Please send the light of Your joy. Like David, I want to turn from my sin and experience Your favor. In either case, I’ll sing Your praises, knowing that even if I am sorrowful now, Your joy does not have to be far off.
