One more Psalm before we take a break? Sounds good to me. :)
For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
He is faithful. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: He is faithful in every single thing He does. One of my favorite things to call Him is Faithful. That’s something I learned through hard times, though. Worth it? Yes. Because now I’ll always know that He sticks closer than anyone or anything.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
His plans stand firm, not mine. What He wants to happen will happen, no matter what I do to stop or change it. It’s better to just pray for His plan and be okay with His plan. Even better if we can get to the place where we want His plan.
But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
My hope was only in Him. There was nothing I could do to get better when I had my brain tumor. There was nothing my parents or friends could do besides pray. The nurses could give me medicine, but they couldn’t heal me. God could. God did. My hope was only in Him. To have placed it in anyone or anything else would have been misplaced hope.
We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
Mmm these have been some of my favorite verses for some time. I love the first part because it honestly feels like that’s been my life for the past year. I’ve waited, but I’ve waited with hope in Him. He’s been my help and my shield. The only way I could rejoice was with His joy and love. There was no one else to trust but Him, no one else to place my hope in. This verse sums up SO much of my past.
*I’m back from camp now, so I’m going to be playing a little catch up with life over the weekend. I have something to post tomorrow, but in the mean time I’m going to be resting. Can’t wait to tell you all about it!*
