Where is our “desired haven”? The Lord has promised us rest from the storms of this life when we call on him. vs. 28 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
vs.31 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
In our distress we can call out unto God and he will reach down and shelter us and bring us unto our desired haven. Does that mean he will get rid of our troubles and trials? Someday he will, but right now, he is our place to run and hide when this life becomes to crazy. Where we can run to our closet and fall on our face, pleading for mercy and hope in a dark time.
He will not always answer the way we hope, and on the outside, things have not chanced. However, on the inside He has brought us to our safe haven, and at least for awhile we have peace in our hearts. Doesn’t that want to make you say with the psalmist, “Oh that men would praise the Lord!”
