“But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands;” Psalm 31:14-15a (NIV)
If we are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ we find it very helpful to express our faith in God often. Our verse for today is a very personal expression of faith and that is the kind of faith that pleases the Lord. Our God is the creator of the universe and He is in control of all the many things which are around us. However He never loses sight of the details of our individual lives. He wants us to have a personal relationship with Him and to acknowledge Him as personally involved in our lives. The psalmist thought of God that way. He looked to God to control the details of each hour and each minute – the details of each experience. He trusted in the Lord; he acknowledged Him as his God; he recognized that he was in God's hands. We can do the same. We can each day, and often each day, think of the words of our verse and know that our times are in His hands.
