Dust


As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
~Psalm 103:13-14

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
~Isaiah 26:3


Are you stressed out? Are you worried? Are you fearful? I'm so relieved to know that God remembers that we are dust. He doesn't leave us to our own defenses. He doesn't forget about us. He doesn't overlook us or ignore us. He knows how we are formed, and remembers how fragile we are. Sometimes our circumstances make us so vulnerable--whether it is a health issue, finance issue, relationship issue or all three, God sees us in the midst of them all.

The passage above in Isaiah reminds us that keeping our eyes on God will keep us in perfect peace. In light of knowing that God remembers how fragile we are, we can trust Him. He knows we are at times very vulnerable. He knows our fears and our needs. When we focus on God and remember His loving kindness, we trust Him to provide for everything. He will not leave us nor forsake us. He loves us, and He will help us.

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:19

...being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. ~Philippians 1:6
