“You think, ‘This can’t be happening. What is secure anymore?” that was the tearful response of a widow who had lost a third of her income when the stock market she had invested in failed. Her story was reported in the Wall Street Journal. Our best plans and hopes can be shattered by events over which we have no control. There is only one source of true security in our changing world. Paul reminded the people of his day, something that is applicable to our day. He wrote not to “trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” King David, when facing a dangerous and difficult time in his life, “encouraged himself in the Lord His God.” He drew strength not from his circumstances but from His unchanging God. And we can too, when we have Christ in our lives.
