I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
“He’s got the whole world in His hands.”
You may have sang this song at church when you were a youngin’? I can recall the song and the motions in their entirety. The all-encompassing message drives home the truth that He is personal and up close and holds you and me.
I’ve come to find that it’s easy to sing this song when your world feels steady and smooth. On the other hand, what about when your world is rocky and things are rough? Especially then, will we trust He’s holding it all?
I think it’s honest and helpful to share that I can stop singing sometimes when my world feels this way, yet I have learned that this is the time I need to sing the most!
He holds the whole world and yet has time to hold you and me.
Is your world shaking? Sing to the One who wholly knows and wholly holds you.
O Lord, Why can’t it be smooth and steady all the time? Is it because You are calling us to experience Your sufficiency? To show us that You wholly have us and that in the hardest parts You are trustworthy, Your whole Word, Your whole promises. In the end, You want us to sing, “God is my refuge and my fortress, the One in whom I trust.” Amen.
