Trusting God in Uncertainty

Psalm 89:8-16

Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.

—  Psalm 89:8

Uncertainty can leave us feeling vulnerable and afraid. But in the midst of life’s unknowns, we have a trustworthy anchor: God’s unwavering presence and faithfulness.

When we are faced with uncertainty, we remember that God is in control. God is faithful, and his plans for us are good. We can trust the Lord to strengthen and help us, upholding us with his righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10).

In the face of uncertainty and the unknown, we find comfort in the reliability of God’s character and faithfulness. God is our refuge and strength, always present to help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1). With the Lord by our side, we need never fear the future. “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of [his] throne; love and faithfulness” surround him.

When we face uncertain times, let’s lean on God’s promises. We can draw near to God in prayer, seeking his guidance and wisdom. In the Lord’s embrace, we can find the assurance that he is leading us on a path of purpose and fulfillment.

Almighty God, in times of uncertainty, I trust your faithfulness, power, and love. Help me to lean on your promises, finding refuge in your presence. Guide me on a path of right living for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
