In Psalm 43, the Psalmist pleads with God to defend and vindicate him by sending out His light and truth. The same light that vindicates will light the path to God’s holy hill, guiding the Psalmist to worship God. When God acts for His people, His people respond in joyful praise. The foundation of that joy, however, is not the deliverance itself, but the God of deliverance. God doesn’t give something apart from Himself called joy; joy comes as the God of joy gives Himself to His people. As you come to worship today, remember God’s mighty acts on your behalf, and make God Himself your exceeding joy.
