times [`eth] are in thy hand [yad]:
deliver [natsal] me from the hand [yad] of mine enemies ['oyeb],
and from them that persecute [radaph] me. KJV-Interlinear
15 My times
are in Thy hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who
persecute me. NASB
Times, ‘eth,’ refers to the evenings and mornings, or days, seasons, tides, continually, and in our verse means the entirety of ones life, all events, all activities, all circumstances, everything from ones birth to ones death. Our times, are in Gods hands, meaning under His complete control.
There is never anything that is left out of Gods hands, even when He allows us to make fools of ourselves with foolish decisions.
But too realize, that God gives us all the resources we need, to make our own life better. We just have to make the right decisions.
In life we have many sources of enemies. The foremost is the content of our own thoughts, followed by people, followed by bureaucracies, followed by the huge variety of natural disasters or accidents, even genetic peculiarities that can enter into our lives.
God can allow you to follow your own plan of life and watch you fail and fail again, even to the point of whatever suffering you may encounter in life. Or, you can pursue your life as God intends for you, and then you can let God bring all kinds of really good things into your life, again as He intends for you to live and to grow up.
In either case, we will live as God has appointed for us, we will pass through life as He directs. We were born into this world according to His will. We will leave this world according to His will. He will present all kinds of opportunities to us, so that we can advance in our spiritual life, and leave it up to us to recognize them or not.
If you pursue your life as God intends, then all manner of enemies will never cause you to utterly fail.
If you pursue your life in opposition to Gods will, then He will kindly permit you to suffer at the hands of any and all the world, which is in accordance with your choice.
You just have to wake up and realize that your life is completely in Gods hands, that everything is provided for, that nothing can ruin your life except you, and once you figure this out, then perhaps you will not be so anxious or worrisome over the little things or even the big things in life.
The better you choices you make with regard to pursuing your spiritual life, to your obligations in life according to your station in life, then the better your confidence in God, will be, and the better poise and stability you will have in life.
