Reading: Psalm 105:1-6 (Click to read text)
Reflection: Verse 3 jumped off the page: “Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.” How does a heart rejoice? How does a sad heart sound? Then there are Jesus’ words: “Do not let your heart be troubled.” Twice he uses that phrase in John 14. It isn’t about heart disease. Though I have often used that phrase with coronary patients. Actually, I guess it is about our whole being. It is probably about confidence. It’s … well I’m not sure that I can put it into words. It’s about God being in charge of your life. It’s about knowing that God has got ahold of us and will not let go. It’s about having confidence that no matter how screwy and ugly the whole world seems at times, God is hanging on. Wait! I think I hear a rejoicing heart.
He’s got the whole world in his hands.
He’s got you and me sister in his hands.
He’s got you and me brother in his hands.
He’s got the itty bitty baby in His hands.
He’s got the whole world in His hands.
