“You took over and set everything right; when I needed you, you were there, taking charge.” (Psalms 9: 4, Message Bible)
Sigh of relief. Peace and comfort felt. Heart full of gratitude. Prayers answered with wisdom. Our good life restored.
God’s powerful presence is at hand. His control is right, certain, and results in harmony. Release your worries, your sense of responsibility, your doubts and confusion, to your Father-Mother-God—the One Who knows exactly what you need, when you need it, and how to bring it to you, how to make it real and satisfying.
I love the Psalmist’s gratitude in this passage, his recognition of God’s ever-presence and omnipotence. He knew, as we can, that what we attempt on our own may feel hard, uncertain, burdensome, wearying, and flawed. And yet when God is in charge, when we consent to that natural arrangement, good things result. We see life set in order, our days proceeding productively, our peace of mind and body restored.
At those times when we don’t know what to do, when we are at a loss for what to think, know, or be, God is there to take over. He is always there. God’s active presence is already right where you are, seeing you clearly, loving you dearly, leading you home not by your own wits and energy, but by the perfect guidance, protection, and care that only our all-wise and all-loving God can give.
