Are we facing trouble in our life? A situation at work? A relationship? Family issue? A health issue? A financial challenge?
God is in utter control of his universe: ‘God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets’
He owns everything. We may fight and struggle for our little corner and our possessions but, in the end, God owns it all: ‘Every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills’
He is not dependent on human beings: ‘If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it’ says the Lord Almighty.
Nevertheless, he graciously gives us a part to play.
• Thank God
‘Sacrifice thank-offerings to God’
• Call on God
‘Call upon me in the day of trouble’
• Honour God
‘I will deliver you, and you will honour me’
I have come back many times to Psalm 50:15. I have called out to the Lord ‘in the day of trouble’. It is amazing to look back and see how often his gracious hand has delivered me and how much He wonderfully answered all my prayers.
“Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you shall honor and glorify Me.””
PSALM 50:15 AMP
