“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7


Can you remember a time when someone you really trusted let you down? They may have told something to others that you shared with them in confidence. Maybe they said some things to others about you and you never knew they felt that way. We’ve all faced those times and it is a very hurtful experience. Have you ever been the one who let someone else down? We’ve probably all been guilty of that at some point as well. We usually find out very early in life that people will often let us down. Hopefully, we have also learned to completely trust God because He will never let us down.

David learned very early in his life the meaning of trusting God. He knew that God was always there for him and that God would never leave him alone. Have we learned that lesson? It is often easy for us to trust someone or something other than God. It may be our job, money in the bank, or good friends we think would never let us down. However, we have all seen those fail us at one time or another. Do we ask God to guide us in making daily decisions? Do we ask God to show us His perspective in the circumstances we face? Do we believe that God cares about us to such an extent that He wants to be completely involved in our lives? For some reason, Christians in America have drifted away from total and complete dependence on God. We have the mistaken idea that we are just better able to handle some situations on our own. Sadly, the explanation is probably that we have not been persecuted to the point of understanding total and complete surrender.

Most of us are guilty of waiting until the circumstances are critical before turning to God. What would our life look like if we totally trusted God daily? In Psalm 16:8 David says, “I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” Have we tried to compartmentalize our life in Christ? Are there some things we desire to handle and control while others we commit to God? We must trust God completely in all areas of our life. “For in Him, we live and move and have our being”. God desires the absolute best for each of us and that is only experienced when we trust Him with everything. We pray that you are having a very blessed week as you totally surrender every area of your life to Christ!
