“For the Lord God is a sun and shield:
the Lord will give grace and glory:
no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
Each of us face things in life that are challenges. In this past week, I had three very difficult work issues that were beyond our control. As I was praying through the second one, I knew what I felt would be best. But as I prayed, the Lord put on my heart that He is still good if things turned out the opposite of what I would like.
So what are you facing right now? Can you see the good in it, or does it feel impossible? Another promise I love from Psalms is this beautiful word picture of the Lord: “my goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust” (Psalm 144:2).
