Some time ago, I had an unusual experience while in meditation with the Lord. His still, small voice asked me, “Do you still believe? Do you still believe I love you unconditionally…that you are right now being led by the Holy Spirit…that I bottle every tear you shed…that you are right now in this place, in the perfect will of God?
“Do you believe all things still work together for good to those who love me…that I hear your prayers, even when you have no audible words to express them, when all seems dark, and fear grips your mind and soul? Do you believe this even when it seems I have shut the heavens to you?
“David, do you still believe I feed all living things: the fish of the sea, the cattle, the fowls and all creeping things? Do you still believe I count every hair on your head and that I take note of every fallen bird on the earth? Do you truly believe that?
“Do you still believe when death comes to your loved ones? Do you still believe what you have testified, that I give comfort and strength to face even the grave?
“Do you still believe that I love you, that I have forgiven all your past and present sins, you, and I will forgive all future sins if you rest and trust in me? Do you believe I understand when Satan sends his messengers against you to plant lies, doubts, blasphemies, fears and despair?
“Do you still believe you are in the palm of my hand, that you are more precious than gold to your Savior, that eternal life is your future, that there is no power that can pluck you out of my hand, that I still am touched by every sickness and affliction you endure? Do you still believe these things are true?”
My answer is emphatically yes! Yes, Lord, I still believe it all and more, much more!
Read all of Psalm 103 and ask yourself, “Do I believe it? All of it?”
