Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/05/16

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Jesus Christ risenBut I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”   (Psalm 31:14)

If the Lord Almighty is our God, if we belong to Him, then let our trust be in Him, for there is nothing in this world or this life that we can trust like we can trust the Lord. For if we trust in money it will become our god; if we trust in government it will subject us; if we trust in man, we will be disappointed; if we trust in work, it will not be our salvation; if we trust in our own strength it will fail us; if we trust in our wisdom we will be made fools; if we trust in anything below heaven, it will leave us lost.

There is only One who is worthy of our trust, who never fails, who is always faithful and true, whose love and mercy and grace are beyond anything we need or hope for in this life or the next. Let us declare who it is that we trust in; let us say to Him, “You are my God.” Let us give ourselves fully to Him and rest in the truth of His unfailing love.

May the Lord bless you as you put your trust in Him.
