Dare To Trust Him

January 14

“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble,
may the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
May he send you help from the sanctuary,
and strengthen you out of Zion;”
Psalm 20:1-2

Depending on whom you put your trust in, the kind of “answers,” “defense,” and “help” that you will receive will be different. If you’ve walked with the Lord for awhile, you’ve noticed that the kinds of anwers you’ve received from him have been much different from the kind of answers you’ve recieved from friends, family, counselors, or any kind of experts.

It is such a delight when help comes in such a way that it’s obvious it was sent from a loving Father, from the God of all creation.

vs 7-8:
“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,
but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
They have bowed down and fallen
but we have risen and stand upright.”

Don’t put your trust in people who do not have the perspective that only God has. People can be SO wrong even when they sound so right. Man will fall, but God is full of wisdom which will remain forever. He alone knows your story from start to finish, and he alone knows your future. Dare to trust him.
