"The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. For you, Lord, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,”
Be at rest once more. Maybe you needed to tell yourself this same thing on Monday. Then perhaps again on Wednesday? Go ahead and do it again today. Tell your soul to find rest. The psalmist clearly didn’t only need to say it once and be done with it. He reminded himself what the Lord had done. He reminded himself of the good things God had done in his life. God IS gracious and compassionate. He does protect those of us who are simplehearted. If you still have breath in your lungs, chances are He has rescued you more times than you can count.
Maybe your eyes need to be delivered from tears today or your path needs to be free of temptation so you can keep from stumbling. He can do both. Be at rest once more. •
And which of you with taking thought can add to His stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies how they grow; they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, tha Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will He clothe you, O ye of little faith?--Luke 12:25-28
O GOD, Who knowest our necessities before we ask, and the manifold temptations we meet with day by day, help us to put our whole trust in Thee when despair and misgivings assail us. Suffer us not, we beseech Thee, to become the prey of useless forebodings, nor to lose the things which belong to our peace, through the habit of morbid and sinful worry. So guide us, in all our way, that we may keep our faces always toward the light, that our shadows may lie behind us. Of Thy great mercy enable us to perceive our blessings, that we may always serve Thee with a glad heart and quiet mind, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
