MY DAILY COVENANT WITH GOD DEVOTIONAL
Devotion for Thursday March 2, 2017
Topic: Trust Him At All Times
Text: Psalm 62:8 – 12
When we have enjoyed the grace of God, we will find it easy to invite others to enjoy same with us. If you have not known and enjoy fellowshipping with God, it will be extremely hard for you to tell others about such fellowship. This was the case of the Psalmist here. He had tested the goodness and faithfulness of God which gave him the impulsion to give the counsel in Psalm 62:8. The counsel is that we should trust God wholeheartedly.
What the Psalmist meant here is that we must trust God at all times, not to trust ourselves at sometimes or in any creature but in Him only. We should trust in Him to guide us when in doubt, to protect us when in danger, to supply for us when in want, and to strengthen us for every good word and work.
This counsel is the best we can get from anywhere. The reason is simple. God is Almighty; He owns everything and can do all things we desire. Then, if He can do all we want and can provide for us, why can’t we trust in Him as we do in small things as well as in big things? Why is it that we are easily despaired? We need to understand God we serve so well so as to begin to trust Him. If we don’t know Him enough just as the Psalmist did, we will continue to doubt Him as John the Baptist did when he was in prison. When we know God so well, we can trust Him. You can only trust what you know. Therefore, know him well by studying His words always.
Food for Thought: Psalm 18:2
Memory verse: Psalm 62 verse 8 – Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.
Prayer: Strengthen my faith, O Lord, my God, so I can trust you in all times no matter the situation or circumstance in Jesus name. Amen.
