Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness:
thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
Translation: When I was hemmed in, Thou hast freed me often.
It is a little thing to trust God as far as we can see HIm,
as far as the way lies open before us;
but to trust Him when we are hedged in on every side
and can see no way to escape,
this is good and acceptable with God.
This is the faith of Abraham, our father.
“Under hopeless circumstances, he hopefully believed.”
Abraham Lincoln, during the Civil War, once said:
“I have been driven many times to my knees
by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.
My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day.”
