Very quickly I can feel frustrated and out of sorts. This morning as I was studying Psalm 139 verse 5 jumped out at me. “You have hedged me behind and before, And laid your hand on me.” My initial thought was one of God’s protection and His surrounding presence. That is something I must keep in mind! As I continued to read and ponder, I read the note in my Bible which said that God was using circumstances to limit David’s actions. This also made me think. Could God be limiting me for a period of time? Those of you who know me know this is not something I enjoy. I like to be on the go. I like to have a plan. I like to be used for the Lord. I find the times of limitation to be difficult. I must learn in these days to trust that God has a perfect plan. He knows best.
