Over the last few days, I have realized anew how much we as human beings rebel when we are told not to do a certain thing. For me, this rebellious spirit rises in me because I question whether or not this restriction is in my best interest. Today at 5 p.m., we will begin a statewide stay-at-home order. For some, this will not change what they have been doing for the last two weeks, but for others, this will be hard to handle.
Let us remember that we are doing this to keep ourselves and others safe; let's have faith in this process. The Psalmist is describing his faith in the face of great trouble, but he is also surrendering control of his life over to God. Today our challenge is to align our hearts with the words of verses 14 and 15: "But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying, You are my God! My future is in your hands." Each one of us has this capacity of faith, so may we let the worries we have today be the seeds that grow our belief and hope in God tommorow.
What aspect of your future do you need to place in God's hands?
