It’s not everyday we wake up cheerful or hopeful that things will go as we wish. In fact, there are days it seems as if everything is against us. We may slip on the bathroom floor, scuff our toes on the stairs, burn our breakfast and lock ourselves out of the car while going to close the gate as we leave home.
People may also seem to have conspired against us: picking offence unnecessarily and refusing to cut us some slack. Even loved ones like siblings and spouses may appear unusually difficult to deal with compounding our notion that the day is doomed.
But nothing is beyond the saving power of our mighty God. When it seems we are on a negative fatalistic course, all we need to do is pause and hand the reins of our life and day properly back to God. He can redirect us and obviate some of the troubles ahead.
Just like being on a roll shouldn’t make us forget God, consecutive encounters with evil shouldn’t make us lose hope. Some days start great, others don’t, but there’s always something salvaged at the end by the grace of God.
… call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. – Psalm 50:15 (KJV)
As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me …. Psalm 55:16-18 (KJV)
