Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; In the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by. (Psalm 57:1)
Herein is the epitome of God’s great comfort and shelter. Whenever life brings its snares and hardships, make this your prayer. When there is nowhere to turn and you do not know what to do, remember Psalm 57, verse 1. When calamities come, and they will come, call out for the mercies of God. When there is no one to trust, let your soul trust in the Lord. When there is no place to hide from life’s storms, take your refuge in the shadow of His wings. You who have a broken heart, remember He is merciful. You who know the pain of loss, hold onto your faith. You who have hurts that no one can fathom or understand but the Lord, make this your prayer. He is merciful. He is trustworthy. You can take refuge in Him until your calamities have passed by.
