Wisdom from the Psalms 6/19


June 19

Psalms 77:18
The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

The little airplane bobbed and weaved. The storm was playing havoc with its small engines. Arthur looked out of the cabin windows. His gaze was met with pitch blackness, but he continued to look out, anyway. He said a short prayer to God for safety, and as he finished, a bolt of lightning lit up the entire sky. Down below, a town was exposed by the flash, and Arthur was struck by the calm beauty and peace of the village. The plane was closer to the ground than he had realized, and he was suddenly convinced that everything would be perfectly all right. A strange peace filled his heart, and he sat back and relaxed for the rest of the flight.


The fury of a storm can be frightening, but the hand of God is mightier, and His hand is ever upon our heart. Though we might feel tossed around, we are in God's care, and nothing bad can happen to us.


Prayer: O Lord, I do not know what Your will is for me this day, but I do know that whatever happens to me, it will be the best possible thing. Your love rules my life, and I trust you completely. Amen.
