psa 31v15 My Times Are In Thy Hand



Psalm 31:15


"MY TIMES" - They change and vary from day to day; but they change only in accordance with his unchanging love. They vary, but only according to the purpose of him in whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning. "MY TIMES" - That is to say, my ups and my downs, my health and my sickness, my prosperity and my adversity, my wealth and my poverty, my happiness and my sorrow, all of these are in the hands of my Lord and Redeemer, who arranges and appoints the length of my days and the darkness of my nights according to his wise and holy will. My times of refreshing and my times of depressing are in the hands of my God and Savior; and I AM GLAD THAT IT IS SO.

                "MY TIMES" - All of them, in the beginning of life, in the course of life, and in the end of life, "are in thy hand". The close of my life is no more at the disposal of fate, or chance, or Satan than the beginning of my life. My life shall not close until the hand of my Father's love closes it. I will not die before my time; and I will not be forgotten and left on the stage of time too long. I want you to get the sense of this - Not only are we in the hand of the Lord, but everything that surrounds us is in his hand. All the people, things, and events which? make up the environment of our existence are in the hand of our God. Child of God, this should bring comfort and joy to your heart. WE DWELL IN THE PALM OF GOD'S HAND! We are absolutely at his disposal. And everything that concerns us is arranged by his hand.

                MAY THE LORD GRACIOUSLY ENABLE US TO ENTER INTO THE PEACEFUL REALIZATION OF HIS GOOD PROVIDENCE. "Cast all your care upon him, for he careth for you." It is written, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH, is everlasting strength".

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee!
