Living in Your Truth

Updated: Nov 3, 2020

You know when you are living in God’s truth for you. You feel it on the inside. It sustains you when you don’t. You have a peace that permeates you, an assuredness in those moments the peace evaporates. You just know that you know that God has you, he loves you, and he’s using you for his good purpose. It is a life of abundant joy.

What about the times when joy is hard to come by? Lately, I’ve had a lot more practice at being sustained when I don’t “feel” it. I’m not sure if it’s the constant, ongoing global conflicts, our political landscape, or continued social isolation. Or even ruminations over Jesus’ return, and thoughts of if I’m ready. Have I faithfully discharged the call He’s given to me to make a difference and help the lost find hope in Him? While I know works don’t save me (thank you Jesus!), I don’t want to be caught unaware (see Matthew 25:1-13).

This morning, I feel the Lord nudging me to read Psalm 91. The words wash over me like a healing balm. “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” The words burst off the page to me. “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.”

Ah, yes. Truth embraces me in her warm arms. “I will show her my salvation” (v. 16). The words of an old hymn come to mind. “This world is not my home, I’m just passing through.”

This chapter, this year of my life is not my final story. “If you make the Most High your dwelling…then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.” I’m safe in the arms of my Lord Most High.

God has me. When I feel faithless, He is still faithful. When I’m not sensing His presence and His peace, He is still there powerfully working on my behalf. My life, my comfort
