Psalm- 32:8-I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
In the midst of this insane world in which we find ourselves, I am so glad that God knows what He is doing.
As I have discussions with myself, lol, and watch the news (watching the news has its own challenges) I find myself getting upset, discouraged, or fed up very easily. It is as if all the pressure of life in today’s world is bearing down on me.
I dare say that many of you feel the same way. We have all the distractions to employ around us in an attempt to insulate ourselves from everything but ultimately all that is happening in and around us will have its effect on us. We may work harder, keep busier, indulge in questionable activities, go into our shutdown mode, etc……but really all that is will still be right there when we open our eyes and look around.
For me, there is only one place to go. God tells us over and over again in his word that He has it worked out. He is constantly letting us know that in the face of any and everything, that He has his plan and that not only can we be a part of it but that we can also allow( yes allow) him to empower us to be successfully involved in what He is doing.
The truth is a great standard for us. We can wrestle with our thoughts all we want but God’s truth trumps all of it. He will instruct, He will teach, He will counsel, and He will watch over us. We do not have to stay in that scary dark place.
Thank you Lord for the promise of your word. Thank you that you care for and love us and are always right there ready to be our strength and our hope. Amen? Amen!
Blessings and safety to all,
