1 Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who delights greatly in His commandments.
2 His descendants will be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches will be in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 A good man deals graciously and lends; he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he will never be shaken; the righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He will not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
8 His heart is established; he will not be afraid, until he sees his desire upon his enemies.
9 He has dispersed abroad, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be exalted with honor.
10 The wicked will see it and be grieved; he will gnash his teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked shall perish.
You are blessed. Never forget that. Blessed does not mean that you will never be attacked, it means you are only ever defeated if you accept it, but if you remember who you are in Christ, your faith need never be shaken. Your victory has a divine surety to it. This psalm does not say there will never be darkness, in fact it pretty much guarantees it, but it also says that, “Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness.” Whenever you feel caught in your own personal night, set an alarm if you must, but get up and watch the sunrise, because your own victory is just as sure.
