TOPIC: Trust In The Lord
TEXT: Psalm 118:5-14
“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” – (Psalm 118:8)
DCLM Daily Manna 24nd June 2022 Devotional MESSAGE:
In our daily engagements and activities, it is imperative that we repose confidence in someone or something. We do not think twice before boarding an aircraft. We are confident that the pilot will do his work competently, and will get us to our destination. The problem starts when we are confronted by situations that require that we put our confidence in God. This, itself, is an act of faith.
The psalmist is convinced that God is good and merciful. When he faced a distressing situation, therefore, he cried to the Lord who answered promptly. He knew that God was on his side, and there was no need to be afraid of what men might do to him.
From experience, the psalmist knew that it was better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. He believed that in the name of the Lord, he would vanquish all those forces that had gathered against him. He was sorely pressured by the enemy in the hope that he would fall. But God came to his rescue. No wonder he saw God as his strength, song and salvation.
We must recognise that it is a waste of time to trust men more than God. It is a contradiction for us to turn to man when trials and troubles arise.
We trust God because His love is eternal, His mercy is unmerited, His compassion is unfailing, His promises are certain and His gifts are good and perfect. All you need to do is ensure that there is no disagreement between you and the Lord, for then your confidence in Him will never be in vain.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
God delivers those who trust in Him during adversity.
