Psalm 28:7b “…my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.”
[Without trust, much good is forfeited as we hold back and live in anxiety, fear, worry and fretting. With trust, we can praise our mighty and sovereign God in faith before we understand what He’s doing with the difficulties in our lives, before we get an answer, before relief comes.
Trust comes from being in the Word, and trust is strengthened as we offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving, giving thanks for what we would normally complain about (Ps. 50:23).
We can rest in you, Lord God, because we know that you are the good One who is committed to our good and are certain to guide and protect us through any unwanted circumstance that comes from the world, our flesh or the devil.
As we trust, you give us peace, wisdom, guidance and provision. And in trusting you, we give you glory and honor before all, both the seen and unseen.
As we trust we open the way so that your deliverance for this moment may come through. Paul declared this in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “…I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses SO THAT the power of Christ may rest on me.”
As we trust we are changed, you are lifted up, others are blessed and unbelieving sinners see your glory.
As I trust in you, I can reject impatience, worry, fear, anxiety, greed and over eagerness; therefore, instead of being caught up in the tyranny of the urgent and the power of fretting, I can rest in you in peace and joy and confidence.
Praise you that in trust, I can take up your patience, your grace, your wisdom, your strength, your calmness, and your light so that I can live today in your power, protection and peace. Truly, knowing Jesus is enough for joy.]
Help me, Lord, to so trust you today that you will be honored before all around me for your marvelous character, for your mighty strength, magnificent goodness, majestic greatness and magnanimous graciousness.
