Jeremiah 17:7 - Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
The Prophet Jeremiah declares that the man who trusts and puts his or her hope in the Lord is happy. In other words, true happiness is only found in Lord.
Psalm 118:8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
Throughout scripture, over and over again, we are exhorted to put our trust in the Lord and lean not to our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct out paths.
We are warned in Psalm 146:3- Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
In other words, if you are seeking true safety and security, look no further for God is it!
The call today is to put our faith and trust in God for He is a shelter in the time of storm, a very present help in the time of trouble and our refuge and strength in times of weakness.
When you have truly put your trust in the Lord, your praise and worship to Him is unconditional and ever increasing, even in the midst of life test, trials and fires of life.
Trusting God does not mean that you are in denial of truth or danger, but that you have placed the issue before God and you have faith in Him to work it out on your behalf.
When our trust is in the Lord our God, the rain may pour, the storm may rage, the winds may be strong, the waves may be high and beat against us, but we will not be moved for our feet are planed like a tree by the rivers of water and we shall not be moved.
Remember: Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for His faithfulness to His people in all things.
