It is so easy to trust God when things are going well. It is when things get turned upside down, when calamity strikes or we are confronted with bad news that our faith wanders and we begin to seek out our own solutions. J.B. Philips wrote the book, "Your God Is Too Small" suggesting that many of us have a conception of God that is woefully inadequate and not worthy of who He really is. Many of us have a fair weather kind of God. He is great when all is well but loses His deity when times are rough. This is not the God that David is writing about. Instead David entreats us to trust in God at all times. He encourages us to pour out our hearts to Him because He is our refuge. Today, know that our God is not too small, rather He is a glorious, mighty, all knowing, all powerful, all merciful God who loves you more than you could ever imagine. Today, trust in Him.
Dear Father God, forgive me when my comprehension of you is too small. Forgive me for the times I lose my faith and do not trust in you. Today, I repent and choose to trust you in all things. I commit my life to You for you are my refuge. In Jesus' name, amen.
