Who are You Trusting?

By: Lynne Conley

David learned the true meaning of trusting at a young age. The definition of trust is- a: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something b: one in which confidence is placed. (Merriam-Webster) He used this to his benefit when his sheep were attacked by a lion. The Lord delivered David from being harmed by the lion.

Goliath was the great Philistine warrior. Goliath was roughly eleven feet and four inches tall. David had heard about this giant, Goliath. David’s faith never wavered. The odds were against David, but his trust wasn’t in the arm of flesh. His trust was only in the one true God. In the Word of God it records, ‘’ Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God ‘’. (Psalm 20:7 KJV)

David didn’t have any experience, any military background, no appropriate gear, and he was young. David Brothers, Eliab, Abinadab, and Shammah, ridiculed him for having a great desire to fight against Goliath, the Philistine. ‘’Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied’’ (II Samuel 17:45 KJV) But David trusted in his God. His key triumph wasn’t in his own capabilities, his own strength, and his own skillfulness. We all experience the storms of life; remember we can rise above them.

The storms don’t have to have the victory over us; by setting our trust, our faith, and our thoughts to the Lord, we can be victorious. The Lord can and will make it capable for us to ride storms that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, aggravations, and frustrations in our everyday lives. The Lord is good and His love and mercy for us endure forever.

The Lord allows troubles, heartaches, pain, and afflictions to draw out the filthiness in our spirit. There a lot of things we don’t deserve but are handed to us. We all can become so harsh when troubles hang around. We will begin saying words that aren’t so pleasant. The Lord can and will change our conditions that we are facing at this moment in time. When we hang onto a sour attitude, it will poison our thoughts and in the long run, it will take over us. We have to start dealing with the problems and stop acting as though we don’t have any. We can’t run from our problems; we must face them.

Keep in mind that we all go through hard times, sufferings, troubles, sicknesses and pain. There are many times we all have felt like the walls are closing in on us.  Look around you, and you will see so many scenarios that could have happened to us all. Our worse days are much better than what some people are experiencing at this very moment. It could be worse for us all. Stay Encouraged, the best is yet to come for you.
