Our hearts’ natural tendency is to be anxious and fearful. We often believe or act as if a situation’s outcome depends solely on us. In contrast, Alistair Begg helps us understand that our willingness to not take matters into our own hands is an expression of humility. As we cast our anxieties on God and remember His provision for us on the cross, we learn that His care extends even to the tiniest details of our lives.

Like David, many of us have seasons in our soul where it seems like it’s winter all the time. Often this kind of depression is the result of having the wrong perspective of our circumstances. While we need to realize the depth of our sin, we must not be despairingly overcome by it. Scripture calls us to trust in God’s unfailing love and rejoice in His salvation. If David could do this by looking forward to the coming Messiah, how much more should we who have clearly seen what was done for us in Christ?
