“My times are in thy hand…” Psalm 31:15
It is so easy to trust God when everything is going all right, our needs are being met, and our lives seem almost perfect.
But all of us face times when things are not so good, trials come, disappointments steal our joy, bills are piling up, and it just seems like everything is going wrong. It is in those times that we need to realize that God is still in control, that He knows what we are going through and is working everything out for His good.
Andrew Murray, when going through a time of deep trial, wrote these words: “I am here – by God’s appointment, in His keeping, under His training, for His time.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to remember that nothing happens by chance when we are walking with you. You are in complete control and my times are in Your hand.
