Psalm 10: 1
“Why, O LORD, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? NRSV
Many of us are familiar with the poem entitled, “Footprints in the sand.” In that poem the poet was complaining about one set of footprints in the sand at the most crucial point in the poet’s life. However, it was later revealed that at precisely that moment God was at hand to do more than walk beside but rather He was carrying His child. Sometimes we are inclined to feel, like the Psalmist, that God has left us at the most critical points in our lives but nothing is farther than the truth. Maybe if that were true we would have lost our minds, or perhaps not even live to tell the tale. We must be appreciative of all that God has done and stop worrying and doubting God’s faithfulness. Let the rod and staff be reminders of God’s goodness. Held high they will be reminiscent of God’s commitment to be our guide and comforter.
