"Pour out your heart before Him; God is a
refuge for us." Ps 62:8 NKJV
Life can feel overwhelming when you're responsible
for mortgage and rent payments, medical bills,
clothes for the family, escalating food and fuel
expenses, college fees, plus the reality of preparing
for your retirement! And the pressure is even
greater if you're underemployed or unemployed.
Where can you turn? Surrounded by enemies, David
turned to God: "My soul, wait thou only upon God:
for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock
and my salvation…I shall not be moved" (Ps vv. 5-
6). Where does your "expectation" lie? In the hope
for an improved economy or job market? Or the
promise of better times to come? David's hope was
more certain: He expected the answer to be found in
the unchanging character and faithfulness of God.
When anxiety arises, we sometimes resort to our
OMGWI list-"Oh my God, what if?" We focus on our
fears, feel inadequate, and give in to despair. Being
aware of your needs is being responsible but being
overwhelmed by them is evidence you're looking to
the wrong source for answers. George MacDonald
said, "We look upon God as our last and feeblest
resource. We only go to Him when we have nowhere
else to go. And then we learn that the storms of life
have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the
desired haven." Remember David? "My soul, wait
thou only upon God; for my expectation is from
him." By Himself, plus nothing, God is your
adequate source. Since He gave us His Son, you
have all the evidence you need that He will also
"freely give us all things" (Ro 8:32 GNT).
