A thought on Psalm 138:8

The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands. – Psalm 138:8

The Lord will fulfil his purpose for me – God’s undoubted sovereignty. Swiftly followed by a declaration of God’s steadfast love, because faith goes hand-in-hand with knowledge of who God is. It’s not in a vacuum and it’s not wishful thinking.

And then, this grand truth-based certainty is followed by a request: do not forget the work of your hands.

God’s sovereignty doesn’t annul prayer.
