2 Samuel 10; 2 Corinthians 3; Ezekiel 17; Psalm 60 & 61

Sometimes the whole world seems like it’s upside down, like everything is spinning out of control.
The bad guys win, while the good guys are poor, get sick and even die.
It seems all messed up.
It is.

Then faith steps in to steady the wobbly.
A sure faith is needed to believe that in spite of appearances, all is not out of control.

I read and He whispers, it isn’t over yet.

“And the trees of the field shall know that I am the Lord; I bring low the high tree and make high the low tree, dry up the green tree, and make the dry tree flourish. I am the Lord; I have spoken, and I will do it.”
Ezekiel 17:24

He whispers, you belong to me, I’m making you ready.

“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.”

2 Corinthians 3:18

He whispers, remember to hope, to call to Me, to wait

Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I
,
for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.”

Psalm 61:1-2

My God,
Strengthen the eyes of my faith, to see that when things in this world seem out of control,
knowing that You see it too, that You are in fact still in control, and that You are not finished yet.
When the bad guys seem to win, help us to trust that it’s not over yet.
When we sink to the end of ourselves, remind us to call to You and there find refuge.
Lead us to the Rock that is higher than we, from there help us to see You working in the details;
transforming little us to the image of Your Son, ready for glory.
