Sin; wickedness; the fallen world; these are big time stressors – even the Apostle Paul says that because of these things the whole creation is groaning – and we are groaning too. This is why future hope is so vital, because we know, all of us, that even when things are going good, something is deeply wrong. There must be a better place, a better rest – a true Sabbath that our earthly Sabbaths have been teaching us to long for. But how can this active earthly Sabbath be a delight? How can we worship in our context? What we learn from this psalm and its being designated as a psalm for the Sabbath is by apprehending our eternal hope we have unshakable joy!
