”Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.” (Psalm 37:3 NIV)
God’s remedy for all that disturbs our peace is called, trust. Trust heals stress. Trust heals worry. Trust heals bitterness, yes, in fact all anger. If we can live in trust there will be no room for all those things in our lives, because they cannot exist side by side.
Someone has said that anger is aimed at something that has happened and an attempt to control the past; worry focuses on that which is to come, and is an attempt to control the future. Trust on the other hand rests in the present and is convinced that God will oversee both my yesterdays and tomorrows. Trust is placing all that has happened and all that is to come in God’s hands. Only then and there can we find true contentment.
God help me today to fill my mind with trust in You, so that all negative feelings of worry and concern, stress and regret are kept far from me.
