Trusting Reliance

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Psalm 115:1-18

God's love and faithfulness are evident throughout the verses of Psalm 115. But it was the words of verses 9-11 that drew me in today. God knew exactly what I needed to see, and it was the message that we can and should trust and rely upon Him in ALL circumstances.

We've all experienced it at some time or another--we go through a season where what's going on in our lives doesn't make sense to us. We're surrounded by uncertainty, things seem out of control, our situation is less than optimal and we're wondering and a little fearful that it's only going to get worse. So I am thankful for how God put Psalm 115 in front of me this weekend to help me stay focused on His goodness, and the fact that every circumstance I encounter is part of His master plan for good.

Do you believe that God is your "help and your shield"? What helps you rely on and trust in God when life's circumstances seem out of control? Will you join me today in telling God that you trust Him completely? Tami

Verse 12 stood out to me, "The Lord remembers us and will bless us." The certainty of that statement is why we can rely on Him.

After losing my job in February, I was at peace that Jesus had my back and wrapped me in the arms of his Holy Spirit and protected with his angels. After going nowhere with the first 100 job apps, Jeremiah 29:11 popped up on my computer and I was content to continue looking forward while longsuffering.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

This morning I read verse 10 and realized my 7+ months are just about over. Unemployment is running out and I have one job offer.

"This is what the LORD says: "When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place."

Thank you Pa, Bro, and HS.

The word of God keeps bringing me back to a place of trust and reliace. Verse 11 "if you fear the Lord, trust in the Lord."
