How, Lord … can I trust in God’s power?
In the Word
From the LORD comes deliverance. Psalm 3:8a
Of the Word
“Into each life some rain must fall.” So goes the old saying. Is it raining in your life? Most people could list some troubles dropping around them, and some are enduring a veritable deluge.
Young David was in the latter group. In 1 Samuel 17, David’s brothers were in a dangerous war zone. His people were verbally defeated by Philistines and their champion, Goliath. When David courageously spoke up for God, his oldest brother angrily scolded him. When King Saul offered armor and weapons, David chose instead his own shepherd’s clothing, sling, and five smooth stones. Sounds like an oncoming deluge, doesn’t it?
David’s words to Goliath are the key. … I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty … (1 Samuel 17:45b). David knew that the Lord was his strength.
God has not changed. His power and His love are the same for us as they were for David. He will see us through any storm that befalls us.
Walking with my Lord
Mighty God, when the storms of life are all around me and troubles rain upon me, protect me with Your love and power. Help me trust in Your deliverance. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
