As Christians, we are called to walk by faith, not by sight. This means that even when things seem dark and uncertain, we can trust in God’s promises. Psalm 91:11 is a powerful reminder that God’s protection is always available to us, as long as we keep our eyes fixed on Him. I love the story of the disciples in the boat during the storm. They were freaking out and Jesus was just snoozing away. They thought that he was going to let them all die. What they forgot was that they kept their eyes on the storm and not on him. I’ve been tested in about any way imaginable, and one thing was certain was that no matter what, I had to keep my eyes on the Lord. It’s very easy to blame him or think “Why have you forsaken me?” Even King David and Jesus himself cried out to God asking this very question. “Oh Lord, why have you forsaken me?” 1. Psalm 22:1 – “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish?” 2. Matthew 27:46 – “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” In both cases, the speaker – King David in Psalm 22 and Jesus on the cross in Matthew 27 – expresses his feelings of loneliness, despair, and abandonment to God. However, both passages also demonstrate that even in the depths of despair, the speakers continue to turn to God in faith, holding onto the hope that God will ultimately deliver them. I know that it’s hard to see that during difficult times, but trust me. God is always there for us. Trust in him always!
