Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. Psalm 143:8.
Picture yourself walking along a road on a rainy day. The sky becomes darker. Lightning starts to flash, thunder booms, then comes rain. You hurry along, desperately looking for a refuge. There, by the roadside, you see a shelter. It is sturdy, dry, and inviting. How you value that safe place!
We are living in stormy times. World conditions are going from bad to worse. But there is a secure shelter, a refuge that can keep us safe from permanent harm. What is it? Note what the Bible teaches: “I will say to Jehovah: ‘You are my refuge and my stronghold, my God, in whom I trust.’ Psalm 91:2.
We need to trust in God. Furthermore, God’s Word urges us: “Keep yourselves in God’s love.” (Jude 21) Yes, we need to remain in God’s love, maintaining a loving bond with our heavenly Father. Then we may rest assured that he is our refuge.
The key is we need to learn to totally trust God, and not have even a hint of doubt in us. Don’t lean on your understanding just trust God and acknowledge that He is the one who is working in your life. God’s word works, plain and simple. Remember they that TRUST in the Lord are like mount Zion we shall not be moved but we shall abide forever.
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.
Trusting God takes a whole-hearted commitment from dawn till dusk. But we are never alone in it. “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20.
