Daily Scripture:

In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted, and you delivered them. They cried out to you and were saved; in you they trusted and were not disappointed. (Psalm 22:4&5)

Daily Reflection:

Can we say that we trust in God? Fully? In everything? If not, when did things change for mankind – because at some time obviously people did trust God completely? David, the psalmist, says that his ancestors had trusted God…..and God had delivered and saved them. But a few verses earlier even he had shouted out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (A verse of scripture that Jesus would use years later as he was crucified.)

It seems that doubts, anxieties, turmoils and things that test us are all part of life - for all of us. The one constant in all of it is God. Trust in Him, you will not be disappointed.

“Be not far from me, O Lord. In every hour of trial, good Lord, deliver me. Amen.”

Revd David
