In His Hands (Psalm 138:6-8)

“Though the Lord is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever- do not abandon the works of your hands.” (Psa. 138:6-8)

Although my family is going through a worrisome situation with my wife’s health right now, the Lord is faithful to send daily reminders through His Word that He is walking with us, and will not leave us nor forsake us! (more…)

Where Does My Help Come From? (Psalm 121:1-8)

“I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” (Psa. 121:1-8)

This is such a perfect passage for my family and I based on a pretty serious medical situation that came up yesterday. (more…)

Lord Save Me! (Psalm 116:3-4)

“The chords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord: Lord, save me!” (Psa. 116:3-4)

While the psalmist is likely crying out on the verge of actual death, the principle of calling on the name of the Lord during any difficulties in our life remains the same. When we are going through rough times, do we immediately call on the name of the Lord and ask for His help, or do we rather rely on our own wisdom and strength to try to push through? (more…)

He Remains (Psalm 102:25-26)

“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.” (Psa. 102:25-26)

The hot topic going on at my company today is that they started laying off tons of people yesterday. As the week progresses, it remains to be seen what will even happen to my position, as hundreds in my immediate organization have already been impacted. Regardless, I have the utmost peace as I know that God is ultimately in control! (more…)

The Everlasting God (Psalm 90:1-2)

“Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” (Psa. 90:1-2, Moses)

Moses must have been thinking back to his conversation with God at the scene of the burning bush when he wrote that part of his prayer. (more…)
