No Off Switch

Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.
~ Psalms 62:8 (NKJV)

If you're reading these words, you likely 'trust in Him' with some measure—you are not ignorant of faith in God. If you're reading these words, you also remain an inhabitant of Earth, and your faith is not yet perfected.

We dwell in this place between faith and fear, between Heaven and Hell, between Light and Darkness. At any given moment, either side may confront us and command our attention.

Trust in Him at all times ...

We cannot afford to trust in Him at some times—
▲ not just when life is smooth and we find time to think on Him;
▼ not just when life is rough and we call Him for help;
◄ not just when we think to share Him with others;
► not just when places and people of God draw our attention to Him.

Though we remain inhabitants of Earth and it fills our senses, God is the refuge where our minds and hearts must dwell at all times.

There is no off switch for the faith which trusts in the unseen.

Lord, we are all ADD down here. There are so many distractions. Please help us! Please call out to us, and help us look to You, trust in You, and dwell in You—at all times.

  1. I have my 'moods'. Sometimes I'm on -- and boy, am I firecracker! And then, other days, I'm off. And I'm moody, unpredictable, sullen and just no fun.

    thank goodness I have a God who is steady.

  2. Yes, I am very ADD today! Great post.

    You're right—our God is steady and sure. I think the more we are fixed on Him, the more we are the same.

    Which means we also tolerate and love the moody people in our lives. :D

    I think it was Oswald Chambers who said something about all we have to do is start praying to be overwhelmed with distractions. What I know for sure he said is this:
    "We have to pray with our eyes on God, not the difficulties."
