Lessons from Life, Tuesday, April 7, 2009
“My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.”
~Psalm 25:15 NIV~ (actually all of Ps. 25)
In reading through the Bible, I’m discovering something wonderful – connections between the books of the Bible, events in them, and how they relate to events in my life.
In I Samuel, David, who’s become a soldier for King Saul is suddenly running from the King who believes David wants to harm the King. In the Psalms, many of which are written by David, who started out as a humble shepherd, calling out to God for safety from his enemies wanting to kill him.
I may not have enemies pursuing me who want to murder me – it only feels like it – but still, I’ve cried out to the Lord for relief from the overwhelming stress I’m under and He listened. David never stopped believing that his God would protect him. I’ve had my moments of doubt that my trials would ever end, but I have come through them and they are almost at an end. My lesson is taking an example from David and his faith in the Lord.
I’m grateful for my continuing faith.
I’d also like to request of those who read my Lessons from Life to pray for the earthquake situation in Italy. One of the ladies who reads this daily reflection lives in Italy. Maria, you are in my prayers that you and your family are safe.
