The psalm for today reminds us of how fortunate we are to have a God who cares for us, who night and day watches over us.
Now I know that God is with me.
In God, in whose promise I glory,
in God I trust without fear;
what can flesh do against me?
Studies done over the years have consistently shown that people who have a deep faith in God are happier than those who do not. People of faith are happier in their jobs, in their marriages, and in their families. They also happen to live longer.
Why is that? Because they place their faith in God alone, and not in worldly things that fade away. God is always faithful, and we who live in that faithfulness share the joy that trust in the Father brings.
