There will be times when troubles come from every side. But God proves to be our shield, very strong, always ready at hand, and surrounding us in His protecting love. We must never sink into despair. Prayer is absolutely vital. In His sovereignty, God is prepared to respond to prayer and work on our behalf. Committing everything into God’s hands, we may rest, assured that He will grant both help and peace. Remembering former deliverances, we will find courage to face the unknown future. He is the same as ever He was. We go forward, feeling there is much we do not know. But, one thing is sure: “Your blessing is upon Your people” (verse 8).
How has God proven to be your help and peace?
