Trust God Each Day
But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” - Psalm 31:14
Do you recall an ad that captured your attention?
No matter which medium . . . television, radio, print, or the web, ads are made to catch attention. Recently I was caught off guard with a newspaper ad. It pictured a gray-haired senior citizen in a wet suit. The woman was holding up her surf board along the edge of the beach. The ad began, “No matter where life takes you, your health care coverage goes along.”
The ad was designed to have you think about your future. No one knows what crisis tomorrow may bring. The life of faith involves living each day trusting God to guide and direct your future. That doesn’t mean that you are naïve and ignore things like health care coverage. But for the bigger picture of life, you can trust God. In the unexpected events of life, you can trust God. The Bible de¬scribes faith as “being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
You may not know where your life is taking you. But you can be sure that tomorrow, God has something prepared for you that you can’t see or imagine. That’s why we need to learn to trust God each day, no matter what the day holds.
“God’s promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine.” - David Nicholas (1705-1769)
