Throughout our days, our years, our lives, no matter what the circumstance, God is in control. All things were designed for His purpose.
For You created all things, and because of Your will they existed and were created
Job 14:1-2; Psalm 90:1-12; 39:4-5; 144:3-4
A man’s life is short of days. He comes forth like a flower and withers. Teach us to number our days.
What is the extent of my days? My lifetime is nothing in Your sight. Man is like a mere breath, a passing shadow.
Wait for God only! He only is my rock and my salvation. Trust in Him at all times. Men of low degree and high rank together in the balances are lighter than breath.
God was his refuge, the rock of his strength, his fortress. David committed his soul to God through the afflictions and troubles. Jesus quoted from this psalm on the cross (Luke 23:46; 1 Peter 2:21-23).
But as for me, I trust in You, O Yahweh, I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in Your hand.
Where are we in the course of human history? When will Christ return? It is in God’s hand. The Father alone knows the day and hour. Mat 24:36; Mar 13:32-33; Acts 1:7; 1 The 5:1-6; 2 Pet 3:8-14
