Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. The prompt this week is … Disappoint.
It’s been a time of much discussion, disagreements, tensions, and turmoil. As we watch debates and Town Hall meetings, we wonder what will be the outcome in just about two weeks.
My heart is heavy and broken for our country. In a recent phone conversation, my voice cracked and the tears rolled as we talked about what would be ahead.
While I may not know what will be ahead, I do know the One who has known for all of time. He sits on His throne, sovereign in power, and has never vacated His throne.
And so tonight, after watching the final debate, I turned to read these verses:
“Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;
you are the praise of Israel.
In you our fathers put their trust;
they trusted and you delivered them.
They cried to you and were saved;
in you they trusted and were not disappointed.”
(Psalm 22:3-5, NIV)
May we remember the past faithfulness of God. God has always been faithful to deliver His people and so, we can put our trust in Him in the days ahead. He will not disappoint.
“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
(Corrie ten Boom)
