Psalm 138:7-8

“Once I was hundreds of miles from home, and one of my children was suffering with a very troubled mind and heart. I was unable to be of comfort because of the miles between us and I was fearful. Mamas are always able to fix things if they are “there”. Well, God put me out of the way and took care of things pretty well on His own. Then He gave me this scripture to say in His reassuring way, ‘I’ll take care of it’. He did!”

Isn’t it amazing what God can do all by Himself? I am always in wonder that He doesn’t need my input.

When we are in the midst of trouble, it is hard to see that God is always “on time” with His help. He’s never early and He’s never late. Sometimes He’ll scare you to death as you wait for His arrival. But that is part of our learning process, isn’t it? We learn to trust by trusting. (Remember Mary and Martha as they waited for Jesus to come to their brother Lazarus?) But their joy was even greater because Jesus overcame the ultimate obstacle for them. He came that He might show the Glory of God in a greater way.

When the Word says, “The Lord perfects that which concerneth me”, I take it very personally as a promise. He won’t do it one moment too soon or one moment too late. But the Glory will be His when He takes care of a problem on my behalf. His mercy endures forever and He will not forsake the work of His own Hands.

“Father, I am always turning my concerns over to you. Sometimes they are small, like little hills, and sometimes they are large, like big mountains. Always you stretch forth Your Hand in my behalf. The battle is Yours, Lord…and so is the victory! Help me remain calm and trusting. Amen”
