But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord; in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death.
Our Father in Heaven wants us to depend upon Him! Recognize that it is the Lord who protects us from danger, it is the Lord who is our refuge, strength, and strong tower. The very sovereignty and prerogative of God is good, even if the results of that sovereignty do not prevent a loved one from dying, or heal a sickness of a close friend. Our God is not a stranger to our struggles and the real pain we feel in this life, He is with us. Lord God, hear our prayers as we go through terrible pain and troubles! Holy Spirit, intercede for us and teach us to trust the Lord! Amen!
