Minister Oluwatobi Ayanfe a Nigerian United State gospel artiste has yet to release another soul lifting master piece titled Praise Medley, this song sure bless your soul and cause you to praise Him spirit and in truth.
The psalmist in Psalm 42 questions the reason for his despair; then he instructs himself to hope in God. The expression, “I will still praise him” signifies an inner determination and a forward-facing outlook. He persistently, continually, and repeatedly praises the Lord. This allows him to focus on God his Savior, the One who will bring deliverance and victory. To have hope in God is to wait expectantly for him. Since he is faithful to help, we know that we will praise him again. This gives us at least a vision of ourselves rejoicing in the future.
Praising God in the hard times doesn’t minimize or deny the heaviness of heart. Instead, it redirects our focus on who God is. He never changes. He promised never to leave or abandon his children, so we can count on his presence, even when our emotions can’t confirm it. He is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18)
