Day 201

Last week I spent some time in Psalm 61, and I noticed something new to me. In the first three verses, David says,

Hear my cry, O God; Listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge,  A strong tower against the foe.

Calling on God wasn't something new to David. Neither was God's faithfulness. He knew who God was and who He was trusting. He could look back on the times that God had provided and rest in the fact that God would, once again, be faithful.

Yesterday I was thinking about all the things that have happened since Day 1. And even when I couldn't see it at the time, God has been faithful. So when things ahead of me are spinning out of my control, I can learn to trust Him. I can learn to rest in knowing that He is who He says He is, and He's always been faithful to me.

God has been faithful, He will be again, His loving compassion, it knows no end. All I have need of, His hand will provide, He's always been faithful to me. (Sara Groves, He's Always Been Faithful)
