Hi how was you week? This is Australia and we have had bushfires at 1 finish and floods at the other. Such a contrast but I guess that is exactly where I reside. This week I want to ask you a query? Who or what are you trusting in? Are you trusting in your parents, your profession, your spouse or in God? This is a superior query to ask ourselves often.
The Bible tells us in Psalm 118:eight, that it is much better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in individuals. Refuge, in the dictionary signifies a state of becoming protected, or sheltered from pursuit, danger or difficulty. God desires us to trust in Him – to be protected in Him. We are not protected if we trust in man as in some cases individuals can turn against us or speak negatively against us or even judge us.
But God does not do that. He loves us with an everlasting really like and it brings Him joy when we take security in Him. One particular of the verses that clearly shows us this is when Jesus was speaking about Jerusalem. In Matthew 23:37, the second portion of that verse says “How generally I have wanted to collect your kids collectively as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings but you wouldn’t let me”. This is a image of what Jesus desires to do with us. When we get into problems or just will need to really feel protected, He desires us to trust Him sufficient to come to Him and hide in His presence for a though.
I do not do this as generally as I really should. Normally I attempt to resolve the trouble on my mine. I would save myself a heap of problems if I just went to Jesus initial and hid below His wings for a though. Psalm 91 is a fantastic Psalm to study about the protection of God if we let ourselves to hide in Him. Please have a study of it and place your self in these verses.
Subsequent time you want to do what I do and attempt to resolve the trouble your self or trust in a person or some thing other than Jesus, bear in mind that He is there waiting for you to come to Him. You and your predicament are under no circumstances also significantly or also really hard for Jesus.
He longs for us to come to Him. So let’s commit time this week in the presence of Jesus and let Him to hide us for a though. Have a fantastic week and retain living the life God intended for you.
