Just trust God. It seems to be our last resort. But this scripture reminds me that trusting God should be my first and only resort. Isn't this where he wants us? This comes in times of helplessness when we realize that a situation is completely out of our hands and there is nothing left to do BUT trust God.
God asks us to walk some difficult roads; I don't know why. But I do know that His desire is that we grow in grace and knowledge. I know that His desire is that we count it all joy. I am not always sure exactly what He is trying to teach me. I do know that He is my Refuge and Strength. I do know that He is my Fortress and my Deliverer. As we walk through the fiery trials of life, may we all come through it and shine like pure gold.
The Lord is my strength
and my shield;
trusted in him and I am helped:
and with my song
praise him (Psalm 27:8.)
