Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for the West Side Church. Please feel free to follow along.
Today’s reading (Psalms 31 & 32) really makes me think of perspective. In the opening verses of Psalms 31 David is crying out to God to be his rock and fortress. Then he switches his tone and says “Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead me and guide me.” Did you catch what he said there? He knows that God is his rock and fortress. David had confidence that God was his rock and fortress and could count on God because he knew that.
I think many times we need to look at the way we approach things. Do we approach things with the confidence and assurance that God is in them, or are we asking God to be in them? When we approach things with the confidence it changes our whole experience. We don’t have to worry, we don’t have to question. We can be confident. Try placing your trust in God, instead of hoping you will place your trust in God.
