Helped

Today's reading: Psalm 28:1-9

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him." (vs. 7).

When we read verses that state or convey that God is our help, many times our tendency is to equate the word "help" to fixing, solving or changing our physical situation. But that's not necessarily the case. In fact, more often than not, it isn't the case. What I'm learning more and more is that when I turn to God and trust Him with my circumstances, the "help" I receive is His peace. And when I have His peace, it's then that my heart can exult and I can give Him thanks--regardless of my circumstances.

Think back over the past few months. When and how has God been your help? When you choose to trust God with your circumstances, how does it impact your attitude, actions and outlook? Tami
