One word stuck out: when.
“For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock….at his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the Lord with music.” Psalm 27:5,6
Yep…the Bible definitely says when, not if.
So I have to stop having the mentality “when we just get passed this one” when it comes to my trials. Because when we get passed this one, there will be another. And another. And another.
That’s just the way life on this planet works.
Now the good news: when the trouble comes, we can find our safe place in Him, not to escape the storm, but to be secure until this one passes.
We can help hold each other up during the storm; come alongside instead of criticize.
Are you in a storm today? Me too! How can I pray for you?
