Placing Your Trust

Psalm 118:8It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.

Messages on dealing with the coronavirus come at you from every direction—family, neighbors, your friendly news anchor, the internet, the government. Quite obviously, they often take positions 180-degrees apart.  Medical scientists don’t even agree half the time. In days like these, people of faith need to do as King Solomon did and pray that God would give them “an understanding mind” and the ability to “discern between good and evil” (1 Kings 3:9). 

Jesus promised that one of the works of the Holy Spirit is to guide you into truth. Whatever the truth is that He reveals to you, know, as today’s verse says, that taking refuge in the Lord is sometimes all you really need to know. God is there. He has offered to be your Shield, a High Tower you can run into and be safe. Lean on Him for comfort and for peace, whatever the next day brings.

Pray With Us

Merciful Father, I trust You. Your promises are rich and reliable. You have cautioned me about leaning on my own understanding, and all through the Proverbs of Solomon, I am told to seek wisdom and truth. Those two things can be found as I draw nearer and nearer to You. As Psalm 119:66 says, “Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.”  Holy Spirit, bear witness with my spirit, as You promised You would, so that I might discern truth, and not be led by even well-meaning people who don’t know. Again, O Lord, I place my trust in You. Thank You for loving me, in Jesus’ name,
