“But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.”
~Psalm 37: 39-40
This week I was in meetings for work and was unavailable most of the week to respond and deal with issues that continue to occur with all of my oncology studies. Not always, but sometimes urgent issues will occur that require my attention and it’s difficult for me to address them immediately. This week one of those situations occurred. I called one of my team members, who was not tied up in the meetings that I was attending, to see if she could handle the issue for me. She said that she was already working on it. She said, “I’ve got your back”. I was so grateful! As I read Psalm 37, I was reminded of what my coworker said to me earlier in the week and was reminded that “the Lord has got my back!”
Not only do I need to know that the Lord has “got my back” I also need to trust that He’s “got my back”. As my coworker was “already working on it”, I need to trust that the Lord also is working on the plans that He has for me and I need not worry for my life. He is my “strength in the time of trouble”. He can help and deliver me; deliver me from the wicked; save me! He can do all these tremendous and amazing things and all I have to do is trust Him. But just as I had to check in with my coworker to make sure the issue was being handled, I often worry that the Lord will not do what He has promised and forget that He is able to handle anything! I just need to remember and trust that the Lord of this universe who is more capable than anyone, has “got my back”. There is no need to worry!
You are not only able, but You are working behind the scenes to help and deliver me. Help me to trust even when it may seem that you are not “working on it”. Your Word is true and You are faithful. I know that “You’ve got my back!”
