As soon as my husband walked in the door from work, he could tell I was worried. I shared the concerning news I had received earlier in the day and has waiting to tell him. Already stretched and weary, the news was an added stress and caused fear to take root in our hearts.
Knowing that our first response should be to turn to God, we decided to read the verse of the day on one of our Bible apps and spend some time in prayer. We were taken aback when our eyes fell to the verse…
“I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” -Psalm 27:13-14
What an timely encouragement from our Savior and Refuge! Moved to tears, we poured our hearts out to the Lord. It is only by refusing to focus on the negative possibilities and clinging to the truth that we can stand strong in every circumstance. So we are holding tight to the promise that the Lord is good and has good plans for us, because that is the TRUTH. And I’m so thankful it is!
What truth do you need to focus on today?
