Psalms 34: 19 and 22The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;.. 22The Lord will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned (NIV)
How are you handling the situation we are going through? This is a perfect example of how we all go through the same experiences in this world. Just because we are Christians we are not exempt from the pain and suffering that the rest of the world goes through, however there is a difference in how we respond. If you have ever traveled by plane, you basically are putting your trust in a pilot and a computer. Airplanes are still the safest way to travel but we don’t think about it, or at least try not to. We sit, we read, we relax, we watch tv and play games and in rarest occasion we talk to the person next to us. Every so often you are reminded you are flying, when your ears start to hurt, and turbulence shakes your stomach.
We need to live everyday trusting in God. We need to trust in His grace and mercy. We need to trust that He will fulfill His promise, and that He will come to our rescue. We need to live everyday with the thought that we are heaven bound. Although we are in this world and we will suffer, this is not the end for us. We are just passing through. Trust in God and take refuge in Him!
