Encouragement for the Election Weary

My daughter, Hope, gave this title to Psalm 146 today.  Some hope from Hope:

“Encouragement for the Election Weary…Jesus is still on the throne:


Praise the LORD

Praise the LORD, O my soul.

I will praise the LORD all my life,

I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Do not put your trust in princes,

in mortal men who cannot save.

When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;

on that very day their plans come to nothing.

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is the LORD his God,

the Maker of heaven and earth

the sea, and everything in them–

the LORD, who remains faithful forever.

He upholds the cause of the oppressed

and gives food to the hungry.

The LORD sets prisoners free,

the LORD gives sight to the blind,

the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down,

the LORD loves the righteous.

The LORD watches over the alien

and sustains the fatherless and the widow,

but He frustrates the ways of the wicked.

The LORD reigns forever,

your God, O Zion, for all generations.


One thought on “Encouragement for the Election Weary

  1. That’s a great title and a comforting psalm. I do suppose the Lord knew exactly what we needed at this particular time.

    The world is in a mess, but this psalm assures us God reigns forever.
