For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me. My times are in your hand… —Psalm 31:3, 15

            Are you worried about life… and death?   Your time is in His hands.   “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands” (Acts 17:26).  He is the one that planned out the very times you would live and where you would live. Your life is not an accident. No life is.   He has plans and purposes for you and He promises to lead and guide us. He alone knew the date of your conception and He alone knows the very time of your death.

            We who acknowledge our Lord God Almighty can take great comfort in knowing He is our rock— He can never be moved. He is our fortress— He is our protector. Yes, nothing can happen to us, not even death, unless it is carrying out His plans and purposes. Therefore I need not fear, but can live wisely to honor Him. My times are in His hands. What better place for them to be and to know this!

Dear Father of all those who have called on Your Son Jesus, I thank You that I am safe in Your hands. My time on earth will not end until You say so. Where I live will be according to Your plans and purposes. Help me be sensitive to Your guidance and line up with what You are doing. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it!
