“Blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

be still and know

 

 We live in a troubled world, but we don’t have a troubled God. He is in control of our circumstances, and if we will learn to trust him, we can live in peace. Peace sometimes is not manifested outwardly; it is sometimes just knowing that the Lord is with us because we feel his presence. We have this blessed assurance that he walks before us and clears our path so that we are not hit with the fiery darts that try to overtake us.

I am thankful that the Lord knows the beginning from the ending, and he is the Alpha and the Omega. Too often people panic when they see everything around them falling apart, but just as quickly as the tides roll in and the sands seem to wash away, they wash back on to the shore. We have a choice to make; live a defeated life of worry and anguish about every setback or problem faced by the world, or we could just choose to trust God. What we fear the most is what we will experience, but if we set our mind on things above, we can overcome fear.

It is difficult to worry when the Lord is flooding our lives with hope; but it requires us to be open to the blessing of God so that it can overtake us. People have a tendency to lock up their emotions so that they can protect themselves from experiencing them (especially the ones that requires them to feel pain and sorrow.) The dilemma occurs when our emotions are locked up; we don’t experience true joy and happiness that the Lord desires to give to us.

I  challenge you, today, to open up your heart to experience all that the Lord has for you. You can overcome and live a victorious life, filled with hope, peace, and faith in God.

Blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

What is a writer? Someone who writes.
