It gave David great comfort to know God was in control. Even on the days he was overwhelmed with troubles, he was able to reset himself to the truth; God is God, and He is in control. I, too, have been so thankful for this truth. When we have periods of time when we are under the leadership of someone who is inconsistent, unstable, or crazy-making – this truth reminds me that things will somehow work-out. From the beginning to the end, God is in control, regardless of what we may be enduring. It will soon pass and God’s will – His good and perfect will – will prevail.
When I don’t know how to endure my current situation, I can look up and say, “Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting.” ps 41:13.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 42
