"​When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.​"​ - Psalm‬ ‭94:19‬

To console someone is to give them comfort, alleviating their grief or their sense of loss or trouble. The King James translation says, “Thy comforts delight my soul.” The word translated “cheer” or “delight” can be translated “fondle” or “dandle,” the way a loving parent might hold or touch a little child to comfort her.

So, “when the cares of my heart are many, Your consolations, Your comforting words and Your loving touch, delight my soul.”

What a beautiful, tender, loving picture this gives us of how the Lord meets us in our grief, fear, anxiety or pain. In the New Testament, the Apostle Peter put it this way: “...casting all your cares on him, because he cares for you. (I Peter‬ ‭5:7‬)

Lord Jesus, my tender Shepherd, my Redeemer and Savior, I come to You today with a heart full of care. Let me hear Your words of comfort and feel Your loving touch. I cast my cares upon You and wait. Amen.

Pastor Dan Giles
