“My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake.” (Psalms 31: 15-16)
Our lives are not in the hands of people and circumstances. Our days do not depend on the kindness of strangers nor can they be ruined by the neglect or ignorance of friends. The enemies named fear, lack, vulnerability, unkind personal opinions and behavior, can’t overpower the might of God and His mercy, His ever-present, always-active Love.
God’s face is shining upon us. Love and Life are revealing our freedom, protection, and goodness at hand. Let’s stop looking at material situations and people as our salvation or our doom. Your times are in God’s hand. Look to His benevolent nature, His Principle of justice and Truth to see the prospects for your day and for your life. The persecution we may feel at times does not disappear when we continue to empower it with our attention.
Look to God. Focus on Him and His gentle and healing promises. He is the one with the power and He is the one who has your life in His caring hands. God made you and keeps you. Every moment of your experience belongs to Him. Trust Him with your days and your nights. Let His merciful goodness show you just how safe you are. Let God’s confident assurances reveal to you today that your enemies are already conquered by the powerful fact of the infinite Allness of Love.
