In You I Trust

In You  I Trust

To  “trust”  someone or something  is to have a very firm belief  or confidence  in the honesty,  integrity,  and reliability  of that person  or thing.     To  “trust”  is  to have faith.

For  all the times  that King David  experienced  overwhelming circumstances,  in which he even faced death,  he kept  his  “trust”  in the LORD’s righteous ways.     David firmly believed  in God’s holiness,  almighty power,  grace,  and love.     So,  David prayed  in Psalm 25:1-2,

To You,  O LORD,  I lift up  my soul.
O my God,  in You  I trust,
Do not let me  be ashamed;
Do not let my enemies  exult  over me.

There is  no one  as trustworthy  as our LORD.     All things  are possible  with Him  and nothing is impossible.     He has more honesty,  integrity,  and reliability  than anyone can imagine.     Because God’s holiness is so pure  and perfect,  we know  we can  “trust”  His promises  of love  and forgiveness  through Christ Jesus.

Many  who  “trust”  God  have been tortured  and killed  for their faith.     King David knew  that was possible  in his life also.     That’s why  David prayed  in Psalm 25:20,

Guard my soul  and deliver me;
Do not let me  be ashamed,  for I take refuge  in You.
Let integrity  and uprightness  preserve me,
For I wait  for You.

Whatever  our life’s trials  might include,  it is most important  to have God  “guard”  our souls  throughout those trials,  so that we don’t ever have  to be “ashamed”  of having denied Him  in some way.     We can  “trust”  God  to answer  such a prayer.

We might ask,  “How can I  “trust”  the LORD  like David did?”     David tells us  in Psalm 25:14,

The secret  of the LORD  is for those  who fear Him,
And He will  make them  know His covenant.

We need  to “fear”  God  —  respect Him.     Then God  will teach us  His ways  and lead us  in faith  —  trust.

With respect,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for showing us  Your trustworthiness  in Your word.”

Love,
Margaret
