Lord, My Times are in Your Hands...

Psalms 31:14 But I trust in you, LORD; I say, “You are my God.” 15 My times are in your hands...

Psalms 31:19 How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you

I never ceased to be amazed and blessed by God's timing and providence. For many years, I've been following a daily Bible reading plan online, such as BibleGateway. Today's reading included Psalms 31 & 32.

There are junctures in life and ministry that challenge our thinking, feelings and outlook on life. This is especially true when it looks like everything is not "turning up roses." However, I agree with David who said, "My times are in your hands…" I am also reminded that, "How abundant are the good things" that are "stored up" for us.

It is precisely in these times that we realize more plainly that God is real, His presence is close, His power is undiminished, and Jesus is interceding on our behalf. It's not that we lost sight of Him. It's like standing next to the majestic mountain that you've only seen in pictures. There's nothing like being close!

Thank you Lord for being Lord of our times and for releasing blessings from your storehouse as we take refuge in you.
