(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Psalm 124 & 2 Corinthians 11-13)
Why would I seek help from anywhere else?
God knows my needs. God is with me. God is all-powerful. He is what I need.
How easy it is to trust apart from God. My insurance. My family. My bank account. But anything I can see will pass away. God isn’t going anywhere.
I believe that God exists. If I can’t believe that then I’m trusting in the temporal.
The God I believe in created heaven and earth. Some writer said, “When heaven and earth disappear then I will stop trusting God!”
The tricky part (for me) is remembering that I am not privy to what God is going to do. Things may not go the way I want them to go. Someone might not get healed. The results must not change my esteem of God. He is in charge. His Ways are not my ways. I know that He knows what needs to be done and I must live in that assurance.
My part is to get as spiritually close to Him as possible. I need to talk with Him and walk with Him 24/7. Jesus slept during a storm! Why? He knew that no matter what happened God was taking care of Him. I must do the same.
“Lord, help me to rest in You. Help me to trust You. Help me to be strong IN YOU. I am surely weak otherwise. I love You for all You have done for me. Thank You for sending Jesus to die for my sins and setting up an after-life with You. Hallelujah!”
