Morning all! Ps 54.4 says “Behold, God is my helper and ally; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul [my upholder].”
Taking God at His word is something we fail to do more often than we realise. The knowledge that God is by our side, as our friend and helper should reassure us that He is in complete control. Irrespective of the situations and circumstances we find ourselves in, we know that God will always intervene on our behalf and rescue us from whatever troubles seem to be coming our way. When life reminds us just how unpredictable it is, it’s important to remember that obedience is our responsibility and outcome is God’s. Sometimes, we get this mixed up and focus more on what we think God should do to help us instead of making sure we’re following His precepts. A key part of true obedience is doing what God says, which includes believing Him when He tells us that He’ll sustain and uphold us through everything. The simple truth is that in the end, we win. Let’s be mindful that this applies to every context and commit to celebrating the miraculous hand of God in every area of our lives.
