Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – October 14, 2015
For the King trusts in the Lord, through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken. Psalm 21:7
Trust in God perseveres. It perseveres the higher it goes in responsibilities or the lower it goes in lost opportunities. Whether in the excitement of promotion or the discouragement of demotion it still trusts God. In fact the more responsibility we gain the more we need God. The more it seems we are capable, the more we realize we are incapable without Christ. Power tempts us to trust ourselves, but more power means more trust in God. Faith in the Lord’s love perseveres.
Trust perseveres because it is buoyant in its belief in the unfailing love of God. The love of God stands secure in the face of suffering. The love of God licks the wounds of a lacerated soul. The love of God provides the grace to forgive and to forget. The love of God continues in the face of ugly odds because it is optimistic of what we can hope for in Christ. God’s love draws us into intimacy with Himself. The Lord is trustworthy!
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you” (Isaiah 54:10).
No one is higher than Almighty God. He is the Most High. We have the privilege, the opportunity and the obligation to go right to the top. The Holy Spirit is God’s gatekeeper; by faith we can trust Him to intercede on our behalf. Our faith may be faltering in our confusion, but Christ clarifies. Do not give up because of the complexities of your current situation. Seek the Most High. He is wisdom. Trust perseveres.
The fruit of trust is perseverance. The lethal swirling winds of adversity may attempt to uproot your faith, but persevere. Persevere in your marriage though culture gives you a pass for divorce. Persevere in your job even if you were passed over for someone less qualified. Persevere as a parent because this may be your time to mature. Allow Him to grow your character—to love you through this time of transition. Trust perseveres by God’s unfailing love!
“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life” (Psalm 143:8).
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I trust You and Your unfailing love. Thanks for loving me!
Application: How can the Lord’s unfailing love lead me through turbulent times? What is the fruit of perseverance?
