Psalm 4:3 NLT
You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.
It is important to remember that God’s peace and plan are perfect. We never have a 30,000-foot view of the situation, but God does. The Lord knows all that is happening today and everything that will happen tomorrow. Therefore, we need to trust Him and His promises to protect us.
Take a moment and look up at least one of these verses Isaiah 41:10, Psalm 34:7, Psalm 32:7, and Jeremiah 29:11. That is just a sampling of our promises from God.
Are you leaning on the promises of God?
When we go through a trial in our life, it is to strengthen us. In Psalm 4:3, David expresses his trust in God. He knows that God’s plan is perfect, and the Lord will work all things in his favor (Romans 8:28). David had perfect peace.
I will share a secret with you, friend. I am going through a tremendous trial as I write my current book. My family faces the problems that come with a disruption in our income. But God controls everything, and I trust He will get us through this setback. All we can do is lean on Him and trust in His promises.
What is a promise from God that you will choose to believe from this day forward?
When you are experiencing a trial in life but can still lie down at night and sleep without worry, you have peace beyond understanding. That is the peace that comes from God; you only get it by putting all your faith in Him.
We get rid of worry by trusting in the promises of God. Numbers 23:19 tells us that God does not lie, and He doesn’t change His mind.
Father, please give me peace as I walk through every trial in life. I know they will strengthen me, Lord. I know Your promises are true, and I can rest in peace knowing You control every aspect of my life. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
