“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Psalm 37:25 (KJV)
Stop being afraid that things will not turn out well. There is no way you can be stranded. Don’t worry yourself! Just stay focused! You will laugh again. Stop looking at immediate challenges around you. Don’t make a permanent decision because of a temporary situation.
I have never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed beg bread. What is wrong with you that you worry-sick? Don’t you know that everything that happens to you is a testimony? It is the revelation of the greater things that are coming. You have not seen anything yet! Let the tempest rage, let the billows toss high, you will not be stranded.
Don’t be like Thomas! Thomas said unless I see, I will not believe. I must put my hand in his fingers and in his side before I will believe. And Jesus said: “…….Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (KJV)
It didn’t look like it, but they believed. That is why the ancient prophet of God said in Isaiah 53:1: Who hath believed our report……”? What report do you believe?
To whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? God’s arm is revealed to those who believe. So you must believe if you want to see His arm revealed in your situation. David was a man that God supernaturally picked up from the back side of the desert. Everyone forgot him: His father, brothers and the relations forgot him. No one gave him a chance but he just kept on loving God, playing his music, writing his poems and Psalms and talking about the greatness of God. And he was never stranded. He never saw shame. He was never disappointed. God delivered him from all his troubles. The David that no man wanted, God picked him and said that is the king. Every other person that was jostling for position was set aside. When I read the story of David, I am convinced that grace will speak for you; only believe.
