Turning It Over To God

In review of Psalm 42:11 it says, “Why am I discouraged? Why am I restless? I trust you! And I will praise you again because you help me, and you are my God.”

Bottom Line:
Don’t be discouraged and uneasy. Instead praise God, he is your savior. Put your trust in Him for your situation.

What does this mean to me:
When I get discouraged or restless, I will turn my focus and trust toward God. I praise him, for he is my God, savior and source of unending kindness.

Today's verse comes from Psalms 42 which includes a prayer for rescue, a call to worship, a confession of sin, and encouragement to trust God.

When I feel myself getting depressed or lonely, I can meditate on God's unlimited kindness and love in my life. I can also meditate on the record of God's goodness to his people as shown in his word. This can help take my mind off my present situation and help provide hope that it will be improved. It will help to focus my thoughts on God's ability to help me rather than on my inability to help myself.

This is a timely verse, as It helps to emphasize my current project at work and decisions I’ve made. There are so many people in different organizations that I'm counting on to deliver, so that we can execute a timely client data center move. Unfortunately as the deadline approaches, there are area’s popping up that seem to be off-track. I had decided a few weeks ago that I would turn this project over to God and ask him to work out the details. I asked him to help me trust him and allow him to work out the details. I asked him to give me the wisdom to know how to handle the decisions I’m presented with, as I can only do the things I have control over. I asked him to allow me to relax and not get uptight. For I trust him to work out the details. In the end, his will will be done.
