Mid Afternoon Meditation 8-6-17


Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
    for my hope is in him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress where I will not be shaken.
My victory and honor come from God alone.
    He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in him at all times.
    Pour out your heart to him,
    for God is our refuge. Interlude Psalm 62:5-8

What are the practical steps to keeping your trust in God alive?

  1. Because we don’t have the capacity to contemplate the significance of every single little detail, we can take things for granted. It is all just there. It has always been there. It will always be there.

    Still, it is not always that way. We each experience startled moments of disbelief, moments when we are jerked to attention. We think. “How can this be?” The detail! The mystery! The wonder! Impossible beauty stirs us to gasp in delight! That is a moment when we know that what we see, what we hear, what we feel, what we smell, and what we taste could not have just happened. This is a moment when we recognize the quality of our Creator’s art. Mere happenstance? No! We know then there is a glorious design.

    To trust, we must believe there is someone to trust. To believe we must contemplate those moments when God reveals Himself to us. To have faith we must come to understand He watches over us each of us every moment of our lives.

    • That is so true! I love those moments when God brings His glory to life before my eyes, those moments when I get lost in the wonder of it all. In prayer i am learning to take more time just to ponder God and His attriubutes and let that pondering lead me to my requesting rather than coming at God with all my lists. this seems to enhance my faith and the answer quotient.
