In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
When you think about it, there really isn't a whole lot we can trust.
Most of us have been hurt at one time or another by someone who has betrayed our trust. The economy can be good one season and then go bad. The weather shifts and changes making it hard to predict.
But in our world of change, in our heartbreak and disappointment, there is one constant. We can trust in God. We don't have to fear change. He is our anchor that holds in the strongest storms. He is our strength in our worst battles. His word and his promises speak of good things for us. We don't have to be afraid, we can trust in him.
Father God, with your help and presence I will not fear the days ahead. I praise you and will not be afraid because my life and my future are in your hands. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
