“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together! I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.” Psalm 24:1-7
At the other side of the road, they say, we find the light at the end of the tunnel after passing valleys and hills of life, truth is what we find is a light that shed us with clarity, that is the greatness of God!
In all life’s trials and seasons of pains, we actually see is not an ending of all these, but the lavishing love of God that caught us in our humility. It is that love that make pain bearable and suffering turns into joy. The Lord, in His loving refuge give us peace that allows us to understand of the purposes of life and there, we live joyfully in the presence of pain and walking in stillness in the middle of the noise.
At the end of it all, the Lord remains sovereign. His redemptive work of love rolls out mysteriously, graciously and His ultimate plans and will is beyond our understanding. And so the Lord reaches out to us to trust in Him, not in our understanding that we may understand what truly matters and what life is all about. Only God reveals this to us and when He does, we find ourselves in awe and just worship Him for who He is.
