“O taste and see that the Lord [Our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.” Psalm 34:8 (AMP)
When David wrote this psalm, he had experienced a lot in his life. He not only successfully battled the lion and the bear as a young shepherd, he single-handedly defeated Goliath, and survived King Saul’s many attempts to take his life. All of this couldn’t have been done without him first developing a strong trust and reliance on God. These experiences were the basis for his belief that the person who trusts in and takes refuge in God will not only be blessed and their success will be desired by others as they receive God’s goodness.
In life you find yourself trusting in a lot of things. You trust that your employer is going to pay you at the end of your workweek. You trust the pilot of your flight that he has the ability to get you safely to your destination. Yet, how often have you been in a situation where you failed to trust in God?
If you can exercise trust and confidence in man who is capable of failure, then how much more should you put trust in a God, who never fails? Trust in the Lord with your whole heart, when you do you will be blessed.
Lord God, I pray that I grow in my trust in you. Let me never allow my surrounding circumstances to cause me to waver in my trust. Today, I take refuge in You and You alone, knowing that there is no safer place for me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
