My  Times

When we think back  on our lives,  so many things  have changed.     Old friends have died  —  we meet new people  —  we may have moved  a number of times  —  jobs change  —  family size  has either grown or diminished  —  maybe our health  has changed.     We’ve learned  many different things  and have gained experience  in various areas.     We’ve had times  of fear,  danger,  temptation,  shame,  weakness,  strength,  challenges,  joy,  blessings  —  you name it.

In all that change  King David  had a constant.   David said  to the LORD  in Psalm 31:14-15,

But  as for me,  I trust  in You,  O LORD,
I say,  “You are  my God.”
My times are  in Your hand;
Deliver me  from the hand  of my enemies  and from those  who persecute me.

God Almighty  is our constant,  so that we also say  to the LORD,  My times  are  in Your hand”  —  my past,  present,  and future.

King David experienced  so many troubles.     Through it all,  David still proclaimed  in Psalm 62:8,

Trust  in Him  at all times,  O people;
Pour out  your heart  before Him;
God is a refuge  for us.     Selah.

That is a part  of God’s eternal truth.     It will never change.     So we can  be assured that  “God is a refuge  for us”.     As we pour out our hearts  before Him,  we can rest  in the truth that  My times are  in Your hand”.     God does all things well.

We need  to especially keep this  in mind  because Paul says  in 2 Timothy 3:1,

But realize this,  that in the last days  difficult times  will come.

Whether or not  we are facing  tough times now,  we need  to realize that  “difficult times  will come”.     All the  “times”  since Jesus ascended  into heaven,  are considered  “the last days”.     Through all our  “times”  in looking  for Jesus’  return,  we need  to trust  in the Lord,  our Savior.

With trusting hearts  growing  in faith,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  it is so good  to know  that You carry  all our times  in Your hand.”

Love,
Margaret
