Still I am certain to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Ps 27:13 (BSB)
Sometimes God resolves our problems immediately. Other times God seems silent. When problems arise, we may be confident in God’s help and kneel before Him with a hopeful heart. But when hours, days, and years go by, and there is still no improvement to our situation, we may feel discouraged, afraid, or even angry. These are natural responses to uncertainty and distress, but if we focus on these negative feelings, we may eventually lose hope and doubt God.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” (Psalms 91:1)
In the face of the pandemic, many are feeling anxious or stressed about COVID-19. Feelings of anxiety and uncertainty are completely normal during times like this. In these stressful times, we can find peace and rest in the Lord. For “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps 46:1). In whatever troubles we face today, God is the place of refuge we can run to. He is our safe place.
