The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 28 February 2024 – Trust In God Always

TOPIC: Trust In God Always

READ: Psalm 62: 1-12 (NKJV)

  1. To the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. Truly my soul silently [waits] for God; From Him [comes] my salvation.
  2. He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [He is] my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
  3. How long will you attack a man? You shall be slain, all of you, Like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
  4. They only consult to cast [him] down from his high position; They delight in lies; They bless with their mouth, But they curse inwardly. Selah
  5. My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation [is] from Him.
  6. He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [He is] my defense; I shall not be moved.
  7. In God [is] my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, [And] my refuge, [is] in God.
  8. Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God [is] a refuge for us. Selah
  9. Surely men of low degree [are] a vapor, Men of high degree [are] a lie; If they are weighed on the scales, They [are] altogether [lighter] than vapor.
  10. Do not trust in oppression, Nor vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, Do not set [your] heart [on them.]
  11. God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power [belongs] to God.
  12. Also to You, O Lord, [belongs] mercy; For You render to each one according to his work.

THE MESSAGE:

David, in this Psalm addresses himself, others, and God. Of himself, he says that he silently waits on God for his salvation, defence, expectation, strength and refuge. He is not happy with the wicked who destroy, lie and curse inwardly. He advises people to trust in God always and pray to Him, not to trust in oppression, not to hope in robbery, and not set their hearts on increased riches. He insists that power and mercy belong to God who rewards each person according to his work.

Every Christian should strive to know God, trust Him, obey Him, pray to Him, and build a personal, strong relationship with Him. This can be done by having an intentional Disciplined Daily Devotion (3Ds) when you rise up early to be with the Lord in Bible study and Prayers.

Jesus Christ left us an example (Mark 1: 35). Others may put their trust in man, money, connections, beauty, position, power or in their ancestry but you, child of God, should put your trust in God always for He is faithful (Deuteronomy 7: 9; 1 Corinthians 1: 9). Do you have a special need? Trust that the Lord will meet you at the point of your need!

PRAYER: Father; help me to trust in You always in Jesus’ name. Amen.
