We and Our Times are in God's Hands

The man of true faith may live in the absolute assurance that his steps are ordered by the Lord. For him, misfortune is outside the bounds of possibility. He cannot be torn from this earth one hour ahead of the time which God has appointed, and he cannot be detained on earth one moment after God is done with him here. He is not a waif of the wide world, a foundling of time and space, but a saint of the Lord and the darling of His particular care.

All this is not mere dreaming, not a comforting creed woven as a garment to warm the shivering hearts of lonely, frightened souls in a dark and unfriendly world. Rather it is of the essence of truth, a fair summation of the teaching of the Bible on the subject and should be received reverently and joyously along with everything else which is taught in the Scriptures of truth.

Here then I doubt no more,

But in His pleasure rest,

Whose wisdom, love and truth, and power

Engage to make me blest.

Verse

My times are in your hands; . . . Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love. Psalm 31:15a-16

Thought

We and our times are in God's hands of unfailing love whether we recognize it or not. How restful in the storms of life to sink by faith into His arms.

Prayer

Lord, I sink back into Your everlasting arms. Thank You I am Yours!
