Trust ~ Assurance

Our trust is in the Lord. He is our Solid Rock. Read David’s words in Psalm 18:1-2. It says, “I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

David also wrote Psalm 27. Verse 1 says, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Notice that David’s trust was in Who the Lord is at all times. He never changes.

Our circumstances change constantly. We can be stopped in our tracks in a moment of time. We live in fear because our focus is on ourselves. I froze in fear when I looked down and saw the snake. The Lord was not in my thoughts because I was focused on myself. In truth, we are weak and inert.

Once Paul realized that truth, he was able to rejoice in the Lord’s strength. 2 Corinthians 12:9 says, “…most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

I want you to picture one strand of long human hair. It can easily be broken. Now see yourself interweaving that hair through the links in a chain. Now let’s go to the first part of the verse. The Lord said, “…My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

We are only able to trust when we recognize and acknowledge that we are weak ~ without Him we can do nothing.
