Today, as I prayed for our nation, I felt distressed. I likened the turmoil we currently face politically, socially, economically, morally and spiritually to a rushing stream. I felt our great country drifting down turbulent waters, scrambling, without finding even a protruding branch to grab onto for safety.
And in that instant, when in prayer I gazed at the banks looking for something to hold onto, the Lord impressed me with this thought. “The stream is in my hand.”
Peace rushed in where concern swirled moments before, and I laughed out loud. First, because it’s amazing God cares enough to meet a simple human being in a time of prayer. Second, because it’s so true. His plan has been established since the beginning of time and He measured the oceans in the palm of His hand.
