In times of trouble I look up to The Father. King , Creator of all things.
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters…, so our eyes look to the Lord our God… --Psalm 123:2
Sounds like good advice from David.
In The New testament we have many stories of Jesus feeding multitudes from very little. Which can give hope to those who are displaced for so many reasons now. Jesus went about healing all who would believe and come to him. Hope for us today that if we believe and come to Him He still brings healing. Sometime it takes longer because He is trying to heal the cause before the disease. Other times the enemy of our life strikes and it the Lord decides the outcome. Whatever our outcome He promised it would be for our good if we stick with Him in faith. He considers more factors than we could possibly think of.. We may not get it until we get to heaven, Either way I am going to stand in trust and hope in Him.
Peter proved our point in the story where He saw the Lord walking on water and asked to come out to Him. He started out well but he took his eyes off Jesus and looked at the storm and the raging sea around him and began to sink.
Where do your eyes fall? When I look at the news and the terrible fires, terrible floods.volcanoes erupting, famine and disease in somany places. I pray for them and give to relief efforts . I am also grateful I am safe for the moment.
Then the reports of corruption in our government and in all governments actually. You can choose to let your eyes fall on all of that and your heart will sink. I am choosing to keep my eyes on Jesus. It is not that I think I will always be safe or comfortable . It is because I know where my real help comes from not matter what hand it is delivered by. I have a hope and a future even if I don't know what it is I will trust. The other part is trust and obey. The Lord will always give instruction to His children. We don't usually get to see the whole path ,only the next step that is ordered by the Lord.
I already know His way is better than my way. Remember He has a bigger hand and a bigger, better candy jar.
