Today's reading: Psalm 28:1-9
"The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him." (vs. 7)
When we read verses that state or convey that God is our help, so often our tendency is to interpret the word "help" to mean fixing, solving or changing our physical situation. But that's not always the case. In fact, it usually isn't the case. What I'm learning more and more is that when I turn to God and trust Him with my circumstances, the "help" I receive is His peace. And when I have His peace, it's then that my heart can exult and I can give Him thanks—regardless of my circumstances.
Think back over the past few months. When and how has God been your help? When you choose to trust God with your circumstances, how does it impact your attitude, actions and outlook? Tami
