Never saw anything like it! They encountered one problem after another… physical, financial, personal and of course you would expect emotional, and even spiritual. No complaints – no whining… the two of them weathered them all with a quiet confidence! It left me in awe! How could they do it – what was their secret?
Have you ever observed something like that? What is the secret? Well today, during my time of “coffee with the Lord.” I think I got a partial answer from the Bible…
“Though the Lord is high, He regards the lowly! … Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life! … Your right hand delivers me! The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me! Your steadfast love [Your “covenant keeping love” – Your “Hesed”] endures forever! O do not forsake the work of your hands!” (From Psalm 138:6-8)
Confidence in God – “faith” if you please – makes it possible to face challenges, difficulties, pain, and reverses with a quiet confidence in the One who “will fulfill His purposes for us!” Oh, the steadfast, covenant-keeping love of God! May it grip my heart, control my emotions, and govern my life! I pray it will in your life and circumstances today!
