Meditations in the Psalms
The sovereign care and control of God is beautifully portrayed in this portion of the psalm. All of it speaks of His greatness and power. His wonderful provision for all the animals He created is described, and of how much greater love and care does He bestow upon us. Don’t ever think that the Lord does not care. He has promised to supply all of our need (Philippians 4:19), and will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Whatever is concerning you and troubling your heart – take a long look around you at how God cares for that which He created.
- The covering of the earth – verse 6
- The control of the waters – verses 7-10
- The care of the animals – verses 11-12
- The consequence of His provision – verse 13
Yes, God will take care of you. He Who controls the water, and provides for the animals, will never forsake you. Don’t ever think that He has forgotten you – no matter what circumstances have now come your way. He is the God Who is always there – and He cares!
