“The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” (Nahum 1:7)
Throughout my life in church, we sung the lyrics to the song “I will trust in the Lord until I die…” we did not just sing, we belted it out. The passion that went into singing this song, was not always demonstrated in ones walk with God, but I guess it felt and sounded good at the time. In the book of Job, the Lord said to Satin, have you considered my servant Job, The Lord knew Job trusted him. That is why the scripture ask Satin did you consider my servant job. When will the Lord be able to consider you? Does the Lord know you trust him or is it just lyrics to a song that sounds good when we sing in unison during a Sunday morning worship service? Today, When I sing this song, it is much different than years ago, I may have trusted God, but not to the extent that I trust the lord today. Today, I can stand boldly and sing I will trust in the Lord and know that the lord is good to me and a stronghold in the time of trouble and I believe the Lord knows I trust him. The Bible reminds us that Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. Because our days are full of trouble, I encourage you to trust the Lord and know that he will deliver you from all your troubles, as he did with King David, as with Job and like he has done with you and me, because we are still here able to give our testimony. I trust the Lord and I have experienced the goodness of the Lord. Man might mean well, but as the Apostle Paul said, “When I would do right, evil is always present.” When you trust in the Lord, you will not be disappointed. I pray that as you mature in your faith, the Lord will know you as one who believes in him. And you will be able to say as David did Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. God Bless you.
