Theme: COPING WITH STRESS
Text: “Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” – Psalm 57:1, 2.
Comment: This psalm of King David instructs us to continue to trust in God Almighty, and do His will, believing that the difficulties facing us would be a thing of the past by the power of God Almighty Who performs all things for us. In time of difficulty one has to contend with such feelings as loneliness, helplessness and fear. In such a state, some would say like King David, “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me … no man cared for my soul”. (Psalm 142:4) But God cares for His children and will not forsake them. The Bible says, “How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.” (Psalm 36:7) Those forced into undesirable conditions by the difficulties that ravage the world today should make amends in whatever area they had erred. They should realise that the devil’s alternative, would certainly lead to ruin, even if things appear to be rosy at the beginning, Those who continue to trust in God would in course of time declare like David the prophet, “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. – Psalm 56:3, 4.
