Ps 30

Ps 30:1 I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
:2 O Lord my Godm I cried out to You, and You healed me
:3 O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
:4 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
:6 Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.”
:7 Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
:8 I cried to You, O Lord; and to the Lord I made supplication:
:9 what profit is there in my blood when I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth?
:10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!”
:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
:12 to the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

This psalm is headed up in my bible as the blessedness of answered prayer. That is an encouraging heading don't you think?

This is a good one to sing when God heals you or someone you love. Whether it is from sickness, sin's destruction, disobedience, division in family or church. It is a psalm of restoration.

When God allows you to go through a trial, look at it as His vote of confidence in you. He knows you can handle that trial.
