Thank God

Why do we worry?

Why do we strive?

Why would we believe for one minute that our provision, our livelihood, our joy, or anything else we may need or desire is dependent upon ourselves?

Listen to these amazing words:

 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
       where does my help come from?

 2 My help comes from the LORD,
       the Maker of heaven and earth.

 3 He will not let your foot slip—
       he who watches over you will not slumber;

 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
       will neither slumber nor sleep.

 5 The LORD watches over you—
       the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

 6 the sun will not harm you by day,
       nor the moon by night.

 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
       he will watch over your life;

 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
       both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121:1-8.

Rest in these. They are the words of the living God. The same God who spoke the universe into being speaks these words into our lives.
