Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/16/15

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Jesus Christ risenBlessed is the one who trusts in the Lord… (Psalm 40:4a)

The world is full of trust. Some trust in their wealth to save and sustain them; some trust in their good health and strength to carry them through; some trust in might and force to save and protect them, and some trust in government to watch over them and take care of them. Others trust in their good works to save them or their knowledge and intellect.

Yet there is only one in whom we should trust, for He has a wealth of love for us and His strength is greater than any other. He governs with mercy and grace; He sent His son to save us and not by works, and His wisdom is beyond all we can know or imagine, for He is the Lord God Almighty, King of Heaven and Earth and all the Universe. In Him only should we trust.

May the Lord bless you greatly as you trust in Him.
