Psalms 28:7 -The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
Dear Friends – Have you ever had anyone in your life at any time that you trusted completely with every aspect of your life, spirit, soul and body? If not, that is common among men. But if so, it is a rarity. And if so, were you at any time disappointed in their actions or responses to you in certain situations? It’s probably safe to say that if you ever put your total trust in another human being you were most likely let down at some point, perhaps embittered and angered, or even ultimately disillusioned in the human response to the sufferings of others. But we can rejoice that that is not the end all or final say in our suffering. Praise God, He has made a way in our suffering and shortcomings to remain safely in the palm of His hands. The above scripture says my heart trusted in the Lord and He helped me, so I’m going to praise Him with a song. May these words of inspiration open the eyes of your heart to see that total trust in God brings rest to our weariness, calm for our anxiousness, and peace to the troubled life.
Beloved, total trust in God, like His glorious grace and mercy, is a priceless gift, a pearl of great price. Total trust in God through faith in Jesus Christ, His Son, will never disappoint us in any situation. Being able to freely go in and out and find pasture with God is a most blessed condition. To fully let go of our stresses and worries, especially as concern situations and circumstances for which we can do little to bring about positive change, allows a sense of freedom we don’t allow ourselves to experience as we should and as the word of God so lovingly instructs us. This freedom in turn stimulates a creativity and desire for spiritual growth, to reach higher with God, to have a more intimate relationship with Him, a deeper fellowship, to truly know Him as we are known.
In this life, we will have trials and tests. In this life we will have sorrow and pain, but our God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think in any situation if we are trusting Him and looking to Him for help. If in our relationship with God we wait patiently for His way, we will not be ashamed. If we wait patiently for the Lord to show up we can be assured He will be right on time. And when He shows up He will renew our strength, we will mount up with wings as eagles, we shall run and not be weary, we shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31). We may not understand why things happen as they do, but dear ones, undesirable things are going to happen in life anyway. Yet our Lord stands waiting for our call to Him, anxious to deliver us and help us. He can take what the enemy means for evil in our lives and use it for good, for His glory. Oh, wouldn’t that be so much better than going it alone my friends?
Scripture says in Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. What freedom to live and grow, to explore the world around us and it’s endless opportunities and possibilities. With God at the helm of your life beloved, there are no limits to what you can both accomplish and experience. Yes, we, with our limited vision and understanding, may question our lives and the world around us, but acknowledge Him in everything and allow Him to show you the way. If your pain is overwhelming and the suffering seems endless, His shoulders are able to bear it. Just humble yourself under His mighty hand and He will lift you up and hold you with His righteous right hand. He sent His Son to die for us that we might be reconciled to Him and that we might have life and have it more abundantly. Allow your heart to trust Him totally for His love is everlasting, His care is eternal. Scripture says in Isaiah 40:28 that the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary, and there is no searching of his understanding. His wisdom is truly infinite and His compassions fail not, they are new every morning.
So we may not understand it all, but we can trust a God that does. If our way is unsure before us we can trust that He knows the way we should go. We can trust that He who began a good work in us will complete it. He will never leave us or forsake us. There is no predicament we can be in that God is not right there with us. There is nothing that can separate us from His love and nothing is too difficult for Him. Ultimately scripture says in Isaiah 46:4 – And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you; I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. Yes, know today that He made us, He will bear every burden and destroy every yoke, He will carry us when we can no longer stand on our own, and will deliver us home safe. What a great day that will be, my friends, and all it will cost you is total trust in Him, complete and total trust.
In His Love,
