Let It Rain

It has been quite a while since we have had rain and the plants and trees look so sad and thirsty.  Late yesterday afternoon, I had been pleading to God for rain as I had done recently.  Then, it occurred to me that  I was praying amiss.  All at once I knew in my heart that God knows our every need and surely this was a need.  Remembering how Jesus always became thankful before every healing, I, too, began to thank God for always being in control.  In about twenty minutes, my husband asked if I heard the rain!  It probably rained good for a half hour or more.  Needless to say, my heart filled with gratitude and humility as I listened to the answer to my prayer.  Psalm 62:8 reads, “Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.”

Trusting During A Crisis

Trusting comes so easily during a crisis time!  It is much more difficult to trust God when everything is going smoothly since we can be lulled into a stupor of thinking we are self-sufficient.  That is when we should be depending even more on God.  Often you may hear people say they work better during a crisis.  That is due to the fact they know they need God!  Actually, He cares just as much about us as we take tiny steps.  Psalm 62:8 states “Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.”  That verse doesn’t say “in times of trouble” but all times.  Today, I will lean upon Him for everything.
