Feed on His Faithfulness

Posted on April 30, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Stressed, strained, and stretched this morning, I am teetering between trust and self-pity.

Psalm 57:1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by.

Ah ~ just the reminder that I am safe in the shadow of His wings begins to give my heart rest. I’ve been a believer long enough to know it is a very real place; I’ve been there many times. My problem is I don’t STAY there!

Psalm 57:2 I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.

I have taught this truth dozens of times, yeah, probably hundreds – but, here’s a true confession from a counselor – sometimes I forget myself that God is in the process of fulfilling His purpose in my life. I needed to be reminded of that this morning.

Psalm 57:3 He will send from heaven and save me; he will put to shame him who tramples on me. God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!
God is my rescuer. His love for me does not wax or wane based on my mood, attitude or behavior. His love is steadfast and He is always faithful.

I remember in Psalm 37:3 it says, Trust in the Lord, and do good: dwell in the land and feed on His faithfulness (NKJV).

The best path out of my personal pity party is right there – feed on His faithfulness.

When life seems to have gone awry… feed on His faithfulness.
When conflict arises… feed on His faithfulness.
When jobs threaten to be lost… feed on His faithfulness.
When there are more bills than money… feed on His faithfulness.
When deadlines loom large and there is not enough time in your day… feed on His faithfulness.
When worry and anxiety come knocking on your door… feed on His faithfulness.
When worry and anxiety don’t bother to knock but just barge in… feed on His faithfulness.
When the sun shines… feed on His faithfulness.
When the crocus peek through the early spring ground… feed on His faithfulness.

Psalm 57:9-10 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
