We've learned in this series that David's Psalm 31 can be summed up as a "deep personal trust in God within the depths of difficulty". But as we finish this series, let's find out why we absolutely need to trust in God. The reasons are unending, but let's start with 4 - we trust in God for His stored up abundant goodness, for the cover of His presence, for His love when we need it most, and for our perfect preservation. Have faith! God has your back. Trust only in Him.
Today, we continue in our three-part series entitled 'In God We Trust', based on David's pleading cries to the Lord in Psalm 31. We know that the Christian life is not easy. Jesus never promises a smooth road, but in Scripture we discover how our God meets us in our difficulties—perhaps especially in trial. We need only trust in Him as our refuge in the face of our enemies and when our shame threatens to destroy us.
Welcome to the first instalment in our three-part series entitled 'In God We Trust', based on David's poignant Psalm 31, and get ready to be encouraged! Despite the trials of living in an evil world, we need never grow despondent because our Lord always meets us within the depths of our difficulty. We need to trust in Him only as our refuge, as our guide, with our spirit, in the knowledge that He, our amazing God, loves us personally. How awesome is that?
