One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.Psalm 27:4
One day, life seems to be full with joy and comfort. But when the sun has risen up, life has changed, and trouble is at the door. There is a thing all of us have in life, “Worries”. I myself am a worrier. I do well to be worried about most things. I worry if I have done my part enough. I worry if I have failed my family. I worried that I have wasted time in my life doing something God has not called me to do. And, I do worry a great deal when the trouble comes. My heart is troubled, and sudden fear springs up in my heart. One thing in my life I worry about the most is uncertainty; I do not like when things go wrong (and I think many of you can relate to that in this aspect).
Worrying on its own is not the problem, but our response is what is to be counted. If we do well to be worried, we also should do well to trust in God and give that burden to him. As Christians, we need to be reminded that God is in control of everything that happens in our lives. For what good or bad thing might happen, we can be content because God works all things together for our own good. My beloved Christians, do well in trusting God as much as we do well to be worried.
So, when the trouble comes, and the uncertainty is walking toward us, we must seek the Lord, and set our affections on things above. We know that God is our assurance, and that is one thing that is certain and unchangeable. For whatever might happen to us in this life, there is only one thing we should desire, and that is to be with the Lord.
Lord, my heart is troubled with worry of what the wicked can do unto me, but you are my high tower and my fortress; you shall lift me above my enemies. My heart seeks you all the day, and joy has entered into my heart; you are my assurance. Lord, this world is not my home, and this life is just like a flower, it only lasts for a season. My troubles are also like a flower, they only last for a season. So Lord, unless I set my desire upon you and believe to see your goodness I shall faint. Amen
