Picture of the Week: Trust


The events of the last week in Pittsburgh at Tree of Life Synagogue can be faith-shaking. Amid the storms Lord, you remind me you are there. I find such comfort in the words of Psalm 46. “God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble. That’s why we won’t be afraid when the world falls apart when the mountains crumble into the center of the sea when its waters roar and rage when the mountains shake because of its surging waves.”

There are moments in life when nothing seems to be going my way. When enemies encamp against me, Satan attacks at the most opportune times, and uncertainty about the future runs my anxiety to record levels. But the Psalmists points my heart back to you.  He reminds me the One I put my trust in will never fail.

“God is in that city. It will never crumble. God will help it when morning dawns. Nations roar; kingdoms crumble. God utters his voice; the earth melts.”

The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. “Psalm 46.

Through all of life’s challenges God, you are my Rock. You remind me that You are still seated on the throne and even when people or situations intend to do me harm you still have me in the palm of your Almighty hand. And what a mighty hand it is. In the Awesome name of my Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

  1. Amen, thanks for sharing. I seldom end my sermons with a quote, but last Sunday I ended it with Psalm 46. Indeed it is comforting in the midst of life’s storms and challenges.
