When I am afraid, I will trust in you. – Psalm 56:3 NIV
I received a message from my sister yesterday that our mother had fallen in her yard and hit her head. My sister texted me from the Emergency Room that they were waiting on CT results.
The news hit me like a lightning bolt through the heart. I could feel fear creeping in, but I immediately began to pray, asking Jesus to help. I sent an email to my church family and asked them to pray as well.
God answers our prayers, and He does so quickly sometimes! I received a call from my sister and talked to my mom. My mom has a bump on her head, but the CT came back normal and there was no internal bleeding. She was at my sister’s house, and the doctor had recommended that she be woken up every two hours. She would not be able to drive or stay home by herself for a while, but God answered our prayers, and she is okay. God is good! Amen.
Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. – Psalm 40:4
We can trust in the Lord to help us make big decisions. He always has our back. When we rely on Him, we can sleep peacefully, even when a decision seems hard.
Sometimes we tell ourselves lies. We stop trusting in Him and instead tell ourselves nonsense stories. We turn our successes into sob stories, when if we only counted our blessings and focused on being thankful for the choices He had given us, we would see that those old stories don’t serve us. There is no need to carry them into the new year. We need to learn to let them go, and God is available to help us forgive.
He modeled good behavior for us, and we can follow His example.
He gives us the ability to start over each day. Amen.
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. – Psalm 9:10 NIV
Our Lord is powerful. His name is wonderful. He is the great “I am.” He is the essence of being. He makes us who we are and forms us into what He knows we are meant to become.
We can trust Him completely, no matter what.
When our friends fall ill with COVID-19, we can pray and have the assurance that He hears us. He is the good shepherd, and He takes care of His sheep.
When we are ill or have friends or family who are not well, sometimes we think that God might forsake us. But He never forsakes those who seek Him.
He is always there, in us and for us. He is there to save us, and we can be thankful for His loving kindness. Amen.
