David was no insulated person who did not know trouble. He knew what it meant to be a man fleeing great trouble and living in a foreign place. Yet he says:
“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!”
Psalm 34:1-3 ESV
“at all times”
This is just like when Paul who reminds us to be thankful in all things.
Being thankful, blessing the Lord, remembering God, when times are hard – like now – is a sure means to our being able to press on.
In the strength that God gives us. To be his hands and feet to a hurting world.
