Trust In God

Lord, how I love you! For you have done such tremendous things for me.

The Lord is my fort where I can enter and be safe; no one can follow me in and slay me. He is a rugged mountain where I can hide; he is my Savior, a rock where none can reach me, and a tower of safety. He is my shield. He is like the strong horn of a mighty fighting bull. All I need to do is cry to him - oh, praise the Lord - and I am saved from all my enemies!

Death bound me with chains, and the floods of ungodliness mounted a massive attack against me. Trapped and helpless, I struggled against the ropes that drew me to death.

In my distress I screamed to the Lord for his help. And he heard me from heaven (out of his temple); my cry reached his ears.

Psalm 18:1-6 (TLB)


David Kgabodiso lives in Gauteng, South Africa. His life has been a wreck for the past three years. In 2018, his contract came to an end at the power station where he worked, and David was unemployed. In 2019 he started to put his life together by doing ad-hoc training in schools. Soon after, the country was placed under lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and everything came to a standstill. His wife continued with her sewing business making face masks, and she was able to keep the family going. But on December 25, 2020, his wife and friend of 38 years, the breadwinner for their family, passed away. David felt his life was over. The future looked bleak. However, during all this adversity, not a single day went by without food or other daily necessities being provided for him, his two children, and his granddaughter. God carried them through those tough times.

No matter what we are going through, God hears our prayers. When we find ourselves wrecked by life's troubles, when we feel hopeless and overwhelmed, we may not be able to hear God - but God can hear us. God hears our cries of pain and desperation and offers comfort and encouragement to help us endure.


Prayer: Heavenly Father, give us strength to endure our pain and sorrow. Give us courage, and reassure us of your constant love and care, in Jesus' name. Amen.
