Daily Word July 27, 2011 - "My Hope and Trust"

Psalm 71:5&6
"For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.  Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother's womb.  My praise is continually of you."
Words to remind us of the great truth that all of our hope and strength is measured in the Lord.  From the moment of our creation, the human being is totally dependent upon God.  I like how the psalmist says, "upon you I have leaned from before my birth..."  It is a true statement that we are not in control - from the moment of conception, we are totally dependent upon God's provision.  As children, we lean more heavily because we recognize our inadequacies and our inabilities (i.e. "I'm to short to get the cereal for myself!").  But suddenly as teenagers and then into adulthood, we are now ready to make our own decisions.  Blessed is the man or woman who still finds his hope and trust only in the Lord. 

Beloved, what is it that you cannot control today that you need God to take care of?...Then ask Him.
