Psalm 41 ~ The Happiness of Helping and Being Helped


Global Celebration, founded by Georgian and Winnie Banov, is one of the ministries we support. In addition to bringing the joy of Jesus around the world, they also put on huge feeds and bring ministry to impoverished areas in places like Mozambique, Nicaragua, Bulgaria and other countries. They even go to the garbage dumps, literally, to help the poor who dwell there. Here is more about this ministry and how you can be a part. “Kindness to the poor is a loan to the LORD, and He will give a reward to the lender” (Proverbs 19:17 HCSB).

The Happiness of Helping and Being Helped ~ from Psalm 41

O the happiness of helping the poor and the weak!
It is a joy that comes straight from Yahweh’s heart.
He will rescue me, too, when I am in trouble;
He will make me smooth in the day of adversity.
Yahweh will protect me on all sides;
I will be happy and prosperous on the earth,
And He will deliver me from the enemy.

Yahweh will give me strength
When I am sick and weak;
He will raise me up and heal me.
He will bend down and show Me His favor;
He will restore my spirit and heal my body.
Yahweh will help me
And the enemy will see his defeat.

Yahweh takes care of me and keeps me going,
Because I belong to Him, fully and completely.
He has set me before His face forever.
O the happiness!
