Q. I just wanted to let you know that your writing on Psalm 66 was very endearing and very timely. We have been going thru some really rough times, in debt and with no income since Oct. We turned it over to the Lord and are not without, but we are getting close. Our small house that we feel the Lord led us to is now on the market.
However my point here is that Psalm 66 and your writing are just where we are. He has always taken care of us and always will. Why we are at this spot at our age 60 is something that we have gone over and over, but beyond that He is here always and you just brought that home to us in this Psalm. Thank you.
A. Thanks for the kind words. I’ve been where you are and know how it feels to have such uncertainty about the future, and so do many others. But the Lord has all of us in the palm of His hand and already knows how He’s going to work things out for our good. He certainly did that for me, and He will also do it for you. Hang in there, or as Moses said to the Israelites when they were trapped between the Egyptians and the Red Sea, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you.” (Exodus 14:13)
Paul put it this way. “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:4-7)
