Week 42 Wednesday


Coming and Going

Today’s scripture selection: Psalms 120-121

Key verse: Psalm 121:8

It’s an expression that is a little outdated; maybe even a bit quaint.  But I think it says a lot about a certain psychological, and spiritual, condition:

“I don’t know if I’m coming or going!”

Ever feel that way?

Well, if so, it’s reassuring to remember that Scripture has something to say about it.

Right at the end of a brief, eloquent Psalm about God’s watchful guidance we find these words:

“…the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and evermore.”

The poet who wrote those words knew nothing about 21st century

  • Work deadlines
  • Traffic jams
  • Computer glitches
  • Information overload
  • E-mail and Spam
  • Health insurance woes
  • Speed dating and Quick “no-fault” divorce
  • And a thousand other things that make us “crazy” on a regular basis

But he knew about the calming, reassuring, constant presence of the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient God who created the universe.  Or, to put it even better he knew Him personally and intimately.

So – the next time you can’t quite decide if you are “coming or going” – remember God does.  And He has your back.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I rest easy in the assurance of your watchful care, now and every moment of every day – no matter how hectic that day may be.  AMEN.
