To me, this verse means that I do not have to worry and that I can trust God. He knows what He is doing and has a plan for me.
In my life, there have been times when I have witnessed God answer my prayers. One such answered prayer happened on a beautiful, sunny day.
I hoped that God had shown me in that situation what was good, and what justice, mercy and humility required.
Every morning, I run two miles in my neighborhood. I take this opportunity to speak and listen to God. One morning, He spoke to me through the street signs I passed while jogging.
I instantly knew that God was about to become real to my children and that this experience would stay with them forever, if only they would believe.
I became a Christian about 250 feet below the surface of the Mediterranean Sea onboard the nuclear-powered submarine USS Lewis and Clark (SSBN 644) in the early 1970s.
This verse became particular meaningful to me during the COVID-19 pandemic, because this crisis, and the other crises plaguing our world today, are sure signs of Jesus’ soon return.
Naomi’s love for God was apparent in her daily living, acceptance of her situation and the hope she placed in Him.
Sometimes we stray away from God, but He searches for us when we are lost because He loves us and cares about us.
While I was worrying, God was working.
