O Lord Almighty,
Blessed is the man who trusts in You.
Happy is the man who trusts in the Lord.
There are always situations in life that attempt to suck the joy and happiness away. But if you truly trust in God, then all of these things are there to further your joy, not take it away from you.
It isn't the situations of life that bring blessing and happiness, it is our reaction to those situations. And specifically, the reaction of trust.
Are you depressed and downcast today? If you are, you might find a lack of trust at the bottom of it. A lack of trust that God is good. A lack of trust that God is seeking your best. A lack of trust that God is not allowing you to be pushed and tried above what you can bear.
Trust Him today.
