Now is the time to determine where your trust is. Do you look forward to a life of ease with a good job, all the money you need, and good health? O, foolish ones, these things can turn on a dime, and there is nothing you can do about it. Put your trust in the One who loves you and will never leave you nor forsake you.
Are you going through a dark time right now – investments that have turned south, sleepless nights, ongoing depression, or anxiety about the future? There will be trouble in this world, and it may have found you unprepared. Instead of bemoaning your fate, consider it an opportunity to trust God for your life and not the world or your own self-sufficiency. Let God roll over the unpleasant circumstances and situations of life like ocean waves cleansing a shore.
