Continuing with our devotions based on Psalm 46, today, we will look at verses 45 and 46. “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God … God is within her; she will not fall; God will help her at the break of day.”
There is a ‘bigger picture’ surrounding us that we are mostly unaware of because our lives are, as a result of our sinful nature, self-focused. We don’t tend to ask or think: ‘What is God working in and through the nations, and why might that be happening?’
The psalmist invites us to learn to see from the Lord’s perspective. He loves people, and longs for us to trust him; even when storms rage, he holds us, and all things, in his caring hands. That, my dear friends, is good news indeed.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help us through your words to recognize that you love us more than we can ever imagine. Help us to be more thankful for all the good that is going on amid these crises that affect our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
