A FORTRESS OF FAITH

The wicked band together against the righteous
     and condemn the innocent to death.
But the LORD has become my fortress,
     and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
     — Psalm 94:21–22
 
It’s one thing to have faith when everything is
going well in our lives. Sure, things can change
on a dime, but who stays up at night worrying
about putting food on the table, when they have
a stable job? It’s another thing to have faith in
God when there is no money in the bank and
no bread in the basket. This psalm reminds us
that in even the most hopeless of situations,
we are not allowed to lose our faith in God. In
fact, it is our very faith that has the power to
turn around the worst situation and to bring
about the greatest miracles.
 
Let our faith be our fortress. When life rains
down all kinds of problems on us, when it
thunders and pours, let us take refuge in our
faith. We don’t need to know how God will take
care of us; we only need to believe that He can.
 
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
