Sing to Me, because I have dealt bountifully with you.
When singing praises is the last thing you feel like doing, it is probably just what you need. I have indeed been gracious in My dealings with you-whether or not it seems that way. You have been on an uphill journey for a long time, and you are growing weary. You yearn for some easy days, for a path that is not so steep. But it is the strenuous climbs that take you ever upward-closer and closer to the summit.
The difficulty of your life circumstances is not a mistake! It’s a matter of My Sovereign will and-to some extent-your own goals. You desire to live close to Me and to grow more fully into the one I created you to be. Pursuing these goals has put you on an adventurous trail where difficulties and dangers abound. Sometimes you compare your journey with those of your friends who seem to be on easier paths. But you cannot fully comprehend the problems they face. Nor do you know what the future holds for them. Remember My response to Simon Peter when he asked about My dealings with John: What is that to you? You follow Me!
I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me. -Psalm 13:6 nkjv
God is my strong fortress; and He sets the blameless in His way. He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, and sets me on high places. -2 Samuel 22:33-34 nasb
Jesus said to [Peter], If I want [John] to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me! -John 21:22 nasb
I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
