Scripture of The Day

Those who trust in the Lord are…unmoved by any circumstance.

(Psalm 125:1, TLB)


By age twenty-nine, author Carson McCullers had suffered three strokes. Then, while she was still crippled and partially paralyzed, her husband committed suicide. Despite her problems, she forced herself to write every day, becoming a distinguished novelist. The English poet John Milton was blind. World-renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman had polio. Former Miss America Heather Whitestone is deaf. Stephen Hawking, physicist and lecturer at Cambridge University, has Lou Gehrig’s disease. No wonder Thomas Edison said if we did all the things we were capable of doing, we’d astound ourselves!

So, what’s the secret to enduring and enjoying life? It’s this: “Those who trust in the Lord are…unmoved by any [did you get that—any] circumstance.” Despite how you feel today, your problems aren’t insurmountable. The Bible says, “God can do what men can’t” (Luke 18:27 TLB). And what’s more, He listens to “the prayers of the destitute…he is never too busy” (Psalms 102:17 TLB). Einstein said, “In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.”

The same God who guided Abraham when he didn’t have a clue where he was going, gave Sarah a child in her old age, rolled back the Red Sea, and raised Jesus from the dead. If you have accepted Him as your savior He is alive and working in your life. So “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”. (Ephesians 6:10). Remember, His chariots of deliverance “are…thousands and thousands of thousands” (Psalms 68:17 NIV).

Today take heart! “The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you” (Deuteronomy 33:27 NLT).
