“The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.” Psalms 138:8 ESV
Prolonged trials with little or no relief have a way of eroding our confidence that God sees and hears, often generating fears of abandonment.
It is enlightening to see in this verse how the Psalmist David chooses in the face of his temporal afflictions and fears, to focus upon the eternal truths of God’s purposes and love.
His and our confession to that fact, is the best antidote there is to the False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR), trying to deceive us to the contrary.
It reminds us that God’s purposes will prevail no matter what our circumstances and that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
