Whom You Trust Matters

Psalm 78:22, “Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:”

The only sure way to defeat and disgrace is to distrust God. With Him all things are possible, but nothing is possible except condemnation for the one who will not trust God (see John 3:14-18). The skeptic says there is not enough evidence. That is a smokescreen, and a foolish one at that. Evidence of God’s existence and goodness abound. The unwillingness to trust where that evidence leads is the problem. The Israelites had witnessed God’s mighty works on their behalf, but they took it all for granted and grumbled. Trust God and He will deliver and honor you (see Psalm 91:15). Distrust God and…well, read all of Psalm 78 and trust God, which is far better.


God Hears and Delivers

Psalm 91:15, “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.”
“I will never leave you nor forsake you,” is a precious promise from God to His people (Deuteronomy 31:6; Joshua 1:5; Hebrews 13:5). Based on the strength of such a promise we trust God enough to call upon Him in prayer, because we are confident that He will answer. When we are in trouble for His name’s sake, when we call upon our Lord, He will deliver and honor His people. We have not only His word on the matter, but He has proven Himself true time and time again. The God of the Bible is the only deity who hears, answers, and delivers His people. Trust Him no matter what, and call on Him always.
