Psalm 31:7 “I will be glad and rejoice in your love,” [Your love is enough for joy, O God. You, Lord, are love itself. You, heavenly Father showed your love in sending Jesus; you, Lord Jesus, showed your love in suffering immeasurably to save your enemies; you, Holy Spirit, show your love in working here in this sinful world to bring the elect to faith and to mature them in Truth. Your love is great, powerful, wise, endless, enduring and wonderful. To know you is enough for joy, to be your child is enough for praise.”
“for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.” [You see all, O Lord God, for you are omnipresent. You know all for you are omniscient. You see and understand the difficulties of my life, my disturbed soul, my anguished heart and you are at work bringing the fruit of peace and righteousness as I respond to your guidance and grace.
31:8 “You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.” [Praise you, Lord Jesus, my Savior, my Redeemer, my Protector, you brought me out into a spacious place bccause you delighted in me—against all reason, all odds, all facts, you delight in me, at first as your enemy, now as your rebellious son, your uncooperative child.
I praise you that your love is not dependent on my performance, but upon your unchanging, rock solid Character of holiness, purity, love, wisdom and mercy that triumphs over justice. To you be endless glory and honor, Lord Jesus, for your great work of salvation.
