Unavoidable Health

"Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me?" How persistently out of the valleys of human experience does this cry of the Psalmist arise from hearts heavy with grief, poverty, discouragement, disease; and how reassuringly persists the refrain, "Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God"!

The Psalmist must have scanned far vistas of spiritual realities before giving utterance to such profound words. It is as though, gazing upward from the depths of human despair, he had caught a glimpse of the uninterrupted harmony of God's eternal plan, and in joyful acknowledgment of God's love and protection, had sung of the hope that was in him.
