When I was prosperous, I said, “Nothing can stop me now!” Psalm 30:6 NLT
I was studying Psalms 30 A Prayer of Thanksgiving
It starts off in a real humble place of thanksgiving and so much gratitude for what God has done.
The writer goes through a night of weeping, we don’t know how long that “night” lasted but finally JOY comes in the morning.
Then comes verse 6! Ooooooo we have to be CAREFUL!!!
I get that feeling of “it’s been so tough” and “I’ve been through so much” and “things are finally better. I’m finally tasting so prosperity in my business and in my life” and… “I don’t want to leave THIS place and go back!” I get that but be careful.
Verse 6 he says “I will never be moved…”
By verse 7 God is hiding His face and the writer is troubled!
By verse 8 he’s not crying out to God and questioning the purpose of profit.
By the end in verse 11 & 12 he gets it together. His mourning has been turned into dancing and desires that “his glory” (wealth/prosperity/gifts/skills) would sing of God’s glory and not be quiet about it!
It’s ok to prosper but let’s keep the Glory of God as our focus. We stand unmovable in our God, not in our prosperity.
