Signposts: Daily Devotions

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.
—Psalm 62:8

Our lives, our decisions, our relationships, our culture exist in the context of fluidity. In other words, we are always affected by movement and change. 

We change jobs, we change partners, we change diets, we change ideas and opinions. It is the nature of things for us. So, it is difficult for us to imagine how we could do anything all the time.

Yet the Holy One tells us to do what is counter-intuitive: to trust in heaven at all times. Not just when we are in trouble.

Not just when we are feeling particularly spiritual. Not just when we are grateful for some unexpected gift or grace in our lives. Not just when we glimpse the magnificence of a stunning sunset or the miracle of a budding flower in spring. And not just when we feel like it, or when we feel guilty for not doing it. But at all times. At all times.

When we exercise trust in God through prayer, we are showing our confidence in the character of God. That is, we are actively living out the truth that God not only exists, but is intimately involved in every aspect of our lives.

Surprisingly, when we make this bold leap of trust, we find a sure and stable place on which to stand—where fluidity can, for a moment, be halted. We stand completely still in the field of heaven, held in the grasp of God.

O God, deepen my trust when all around me is shifting sand.
