“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 27:14

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Trust in the Lord.

Have faith, do not despair.

Trust in the Lord.

.

– Psalm 27:14 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

So many things can make us despair.

So much suffering and pain, injustice, cruelty, tragedy,

scandal, immorality and transgression, evil…

Too much!

Sometimes, all that happens around us, or to us,

can make us feel helpless;

can fill us with a sense of hopelessness.

.

But the believer knows

that, in certain circumstances, all he or she can do…is pray.

.

And when we pray in the spirit,

and as our prayer arises from our heart,

the Holy Spirit will console us,

reminding us about Christ’s victory over death,

and filling us again with hope.

.

The purpose of Christ’s death and resurrection is so great

that all evil and suffering, even at their worst, cannot defeat it.

This is the great hope we have in Christ.

.

This does not answer all our questions,

nor take away our pain,

but it points to an answer more marvellous than any we could have expected:

knowing that God can be trusted absolutely is what counts.

We can live with unresolved questions when we know that

and when we believe that with all our heart.

.

It also gives us our greatest incentive to give life our very best!

.

Therefore, trust in the Lord.

Have faith, do not despair.

Trust in the Lord.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Trust in the Lord, O my soul.

Have faith, do not despair. Trust in the Lord.
