Thought For Today: “Trust in God Alone”
Only in God are we safe. David had mistakenly trusted in his prosperity saying, “Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.” (Psalm 30:6)
But when reality came, he realized that he could only trust in God, that only in God was he safe, and so when he felt as if God had turned His face from him, he cried out to God.
The Lord allowed David to experience a harrowing sickness that just about took his life. And it was upon what David considered to be his death bed that he prayed for God’s healing hand, and the Lord heard his cry and healed him.
“O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health. You brought me up from the grave, O Lord. You kept me from falling into the pit of death.” (Psalm 30:2-3)
There is only one sure dwelling place for our souls, and that is in the heart of God. To dwell there is to cease trusting in anything else including self and circumstances.
In the end David said, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning …You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness.” (Psalm 30:5b. 11)
Therefore, let’s place our complete trust in the Lord, and in Him alone.
