There are some passages of Scripture that need little explanation, they simply need to be read and meditated on. Psalm 43 is one of those passages. Here it is in it’s entirety. Pay special attention to the last verse. This is what preaching the Gospel to yourself looks like, remembering that even in the darkest hour, the salvation of the Lord is more than sufficient:
1 Vindicate me, O God, and defend my cause
against an ungodly people,
from the deceitful and unjust man
2 For you are the God in whom I take refuge;
why have you rejected me?
Why do I go about mourning
because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 Send out your light and your truth;
let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy hill
and to your dwelling!
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
to God my exceeding joy,
and I will praise you with the lyre,
O God, my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation and my God.
