Trust God and His Word

Trust God and His Word
by Judy Hitson

Psalm 56:4 NASB
In God, whose word I praise,
In God I have put my trust;
I shall not be afraid.
What can mere man do to me?

It troubles me that there seems to be a famine on the land, a famine as seen in Amos 8:11NASB “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord God, “When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the LORD.

It is heartbreaking to see and hear battles raging for values against God’s laws, His ways and His word. These  so called values are corrupt, immoral and self-righteous. Let us discern this enemy of deception.

“Whatever a man sows so shall he reap; to the flesh reap corruption; to the Spirit reap eternal life”. See Galatians 6: 7-8.

It is our choice what we sow and reap. If we belong to God and believe in His word, what is our part?

I hear, “Pray. Seek the Lord to sow to the Spirit and reap eternal life.” Let us share truth in love with those who are deceived. They speak lies they believe that distort God’s word.

How can they know unless they hear? Let us trust God and His word rather than the world as He prompts us to share words of life by His Spirit. As I write and consider the importance for us to trust God, I think of Ps.118:8-9 NLV It is better to trust in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to trust in rulers.

The deity of Jesus Christ is essential for us to think about as we look to trust God’s word. Take time to meditate on John 1:1-14. Jesus is the Word. Do you think of God’s word as the Person of Jesus Christ?  When we do, we see Him from Genesis through Revelation as we read the Bible, God’s written Word?

Scripture says the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart, Heb.4:12. It serves us well to know God and His word. Consider Matt.4:4NASB when Jesus was tempted in the desert by satan He said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'” Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know God’s word so well that when tempted by the enemy, the Spirit of God would bring to mind the word of the Lord to speak at that time?

There is more on my heart in regards to trusting God and His word but I close with a challenge. Read slowly Psalm 119, highlight each time God’s word is mentioned and ponder what He is saying for you to trust Him and His word.
