Psalms 31:14 But as for me, I trust in You, O 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

There are seasons 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." 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 in these times that we realize more clearly that God is real, His power is undiminished, and He is bigger that we realize. It's like standing next to the majestic mountain that you've only seen in pictures. There's nothing like being close to it!

A prayer: "Thank you for being the Lord of my 'times' and for releasing blessings from your storehouse as I take refuge in you."

Reflection Question: What you are presently concerned about that you should NOT fear because your times are in God's hands?
