David was expressing his belief that all of life’s circumstances are under God’s control. Knowing that God loves and cares for us enables us to keep steady in our faith regardless of our circumstances. This keeps us from taking matters into our own hands or resenting God’s timetable.There comes a time when we just have to trust God. Not with a blind faith, but a faith built on a solid foundation; a faith with roots going down deep into our being. A place where our primal fears and apprehension lie colliding with our seemingly logic and assumptions. When everything in us says, “Run, hide, quit, fight or give in,” God shows up and we have to choose. Have a wonderfully blessed day in the presence of the Lord.
“But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying, ‘You are my God!’ My future is in your hands.” ~~ Psalm 31:14-15
David had to make a choice and he chose God. He may have been afraid but he said, “But I am trusting.” He may have had advice that was contrary but he said, “But I am trusting.” His back was against the wall, all human hope exhausted yet he said, “But I am trusting!” Today, let go. Hear God’s voice, see His amazing love and power for you and say with David, “But I am trusting you, O LORD – You are my God! My future is in your hands.”
Quiet your heart and be still. When ready, visualize a pad in your mind and write a list of things you are deeply concerned about. As you look over the list, sense God’s presence. Allow God to look over your shoulder at your deep concerns. Sense His love for you and His desire to work things out for you. Feel faith well up inside and when you are ready, say out loud, “I am trusting you, O LORD – You are my God! My future is in your hands.”
Lord God I ask you to help my friends to trust in You. We know we should and we are so at times so weak in our faith. Holy Spirit, comfort them, encourage their heart, blow gently on any small amber of faith You find and fan it into a flame. Ignite their heart so we can trust You more. In Jesus’ name. AMEN and AMEN.
