Hide me in the shadow of your wings

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:19)

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? … So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:25-34, abbreviated)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

My desire this morning is that when God chooses to bless me with a trial today, I will not shove away his hand like a spoiled child. “No, God. This is NOT in your will for me, and I just know it. So take away this momentary suffering and bring me back my happiness.” Anything that You can bring me to draw me nearer to you is the greatest blessing. Help me to accept, trust, and obey, and to do it with joy.
