We can have all the faith in the Lord in the world and get nowhere in our relationship with Him and in life because of what we do when it comes to trust. Just because we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and in the truth of the Bible doesn’t mean we put our trust in Him and obey Him as far as the Bible is concerned. We need to CHOOSE TO TRUST THE LORD and CHOOSE TO HUMBLE OURSELVES AND IN OUR LOVE FOR HIM OBEY HIM.
The psalmist over and again writes of PUTTING HIS TRUST in the Lord. This is a wonderful and strong reminder for us to make the decision day by day, hour by hour, step by step, breath by breath to PUT OUR TRUST IN THE LORD. To CHOOSE TO TRUST HIM. In all things. All the time. And, when we fall short, to repent and turn back to Him!
“Trust in him at all times; ye people,…” Psalms 62:8
I have believed in Jesus Christ as Lord for many years but for much of that time I have fallen greatly short in trusting Him. In PUTTING MY TRUST IN THE LORD. I have proclaimed my faith in Him to many and most especially to the Lord Himself all the while putting my trust in myself, in others, and in this world time and again instead of IN THE LORD. I have fallen miserably far short and missed God’s perfect will for my life and ministry each and every time I failed to CHOOSE TO TRUST THE LORD and TO PUT MY TRUST IN HIM.
Now I am learning day by day to stand on my FAITH IN THE LORD and to PUT MY TRUST IN THE LORD and to think, speak, and act accordingly. I have a long way to go and am so very thankful to the Lord for His amazing and blessed patience and mercy with me and for the encouragement and strength and leading He gives me to go forth learning to PUT MY TRUST IN HIM. To CHOOSE TO TRUST HIM!
Friend, where do you stand with PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD? With CHOOSING TO TRUST IN HIM in all things? In every area of your life? Oh, TRUST IN THE LORD, my friend. TRUST, TRUST, TRUST IN HIM!
Please be encouraged and inspired to CHOOSE TO TRUST IN HIM by reading these verses. And please as you read the Bible keep your eyes open for encouragement to PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD!
