Psalm 57 ~ Yahweh in the Storm


A personal confession adapted from the Psalms.

Yahweh in the Storm ~ from Psalm 57

When storms rage, I go to Yahweh for refuge.
He will show me His favor and kindness.
He will keep me safe under His wing
While the tempest passes by.

I call out to Yahweh,
Who is much greater than anything
That could ever come my way.
He will do for me
Whatever needs to be done.
He will send whatever I need,
From the realms of heaven,
And rebuke whatever threatens me.
He will display His covenant love
And faithfulness.

Even in the midst of hungry lions
With anger and slander in their mouths,
I will praise Yahweh,
Who reigns over the heavens
And shows His glory over all the earth.
Those who dig a pit for me,
Who set a trap for my steps,
Will fall into it themselves,
While I pass by in safety.

My heart is prepared, focused on Yahweh.
I will sing and celebrate;
I will stir up everything within me
And start every day with praises to Him.
I will give Him thanks
In front of everyone, everywhere.
For His covenant love and faithfulness
Fill heaven and earth.
