A Declaration of Trust

Notice what the psalmist DIDN’T say…

“This is the day that I have made…”

“This is the day when every circumstance will go the way I want…”

“This is the day when no obstacles or people will interfere with my plans…”

The psalmist is making a declaration of trust in God’s sovereign agenda.

We don’t know what this new day or new week will hold.

  • Unexpected obstacles.
  • Financial struggles.
  • Relational issues.
  • Health concerns or perhaps even the death of a loved one.

But nothing that comes at us will be a surprise to God. Life is His story, not ours, and we can choose to trust Him with the unknown and the unexpected. We can make a declaration of trust.

God has not promised a problem-free life or even a quick solution to every difficult circumstance that we might face; but He has promised to be with us always – through everything that life throws at us.

And God’s presence is better than any earthly blessing!

“This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
