Psalm 118:23: Marvelous

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Psalm 118:23This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

God turns all harm to good.  All things done in the dark to bring pain and suffering are noted by God, and converted by him into transformative, life-giving moments.  We only need trust in him above all else . . . and rejoice that we are so well-loved.

God says: I see that you often suffer from the actions and words, or the inactions and aggressive silences of others.  There are sins of commission as well as omission.  There are temptations that draw you away from me, and there are temptations that pull you to a standstill so that you feel mired in mud.  This quick sand turns to life-giving waters when you allow me to touch you, to carry you, to wash you and to heal you.  Come to me, all you who are burdened.  You will see what marvels my hands can perform. 

May all little and big harms of the day become inverted in God’s hands.
