He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. -Psalms 145:19 (NKJV)
What do you do when you’ve got unscalable cliffs to your left and to your right, stormy skies pouring down from above, and only uncertainty ahead in the fog?
The Psalms are an amazing place to take refuge in the bible, especially when you’re trudging deep in a valley and season of trials, tribulations, and despair. The longer you’re in the valley, the more chances you have to fall prey to the enemy’s whisperings of doubt and fear.
But God’s promises and plans are far better than anything we face in our time on this earth…no matter how bad. No matter how intimidating. No matter how seemingly hopeless. His Word we are to hide in our hearts and carry with us (Psalm 119:11), and retreat into His Word when there is nothing but terror and grief and strife and uncertainty all around us.
We continue to walk, and we walk in fear (reverence) of the Lord, and He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him. He hears His children and will save them! Let us instead walk by faith, and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7), in complete faith, obedience, and surrender.
Though it may appear endless from where we stand, God’s much longer, larger view and scale of our lives reveals His grand design…far beyond our comprehension. He’s using these times to shape and strengthen and grow us.
Our seasons and times are far from endless. The only truly endless and infinite entity is God, who has endless love for us. It’s in Him whom we trust our now and our future.
Lauren Daigle’s “Trust In You” reminds us that even when He doesn’t act right when we want Him to, we trust completely in Him.
