I’ve often heard that people with great attitudes see the best in the worst situations. I firmly believe that people who know whose they are find silver linings in dark clouds, too. Take Lolo Jones, a U.S. Olympic Hurdler, for example. In a recent tweet, she said, “I never have prayed to win a gold medal at Olympics and never will. The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want. May His will be done.” Knowing that you belong to God changes you perspective, even in the least ideal circumstances.
David was very aware of whose he was. In Psalm 23, David conveys a thought that should bring peace to every believer’s mind: “Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside he” (Psalm 23:4, NLT). Our connection to God guarantees His presence, no matter the circumstance. When the so-called trustworthy leave, God is always there!
The next time you’re faced with a challenge, do like Lolo Jones and David. Remember who you belong to. then, trust that He’s always by your side, no matter the circumstance.
Thought to Consider:
Do you trust God even when you can’t trace Him?
