“TRUST at ALL Times!”
Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our Refuge. Psalm 62:8
King David was not only a GREAT KING, and WARRIOR, but he was also an ACCOMPLISHED SONG WRITER. Many of his Psalms were sent to the Director of Music. And this Psalm is one of his songs. David KNEW where his STRENGTH came from, and was pretty adamant about where he placed his TRUST.
In this Psalm, David expresses that the ALMIGHTY GOD is his REST, ROCK, REFUGE, HOPE, A MIGHTY FORTRESS, and his SALVATION. And his DEPENDENCE was on God. This claim came from life-time experiences. God RESCUED David from his enemies, many times and gave him the ability to be a MIGHTY WARRIOR and KING. Whenever David was in trouble, he CALLED upon the ALMIGHTY GOD, because he KNEW that GOD would RESCUE him and would be his SALVATION. He also KNEW the IMPORTANCE of WHEN to put his TRUST IN GOD.
David says to: TRUST in God at ALL times, NOT ONLY when we are facing TROUBLES, but ALL the time. We NEED to TRUST Him with EVERY ASPECT of our lives. We SHOULD POUR OUT our WHOLE HEART to Him, without ABANDONING our FAITH, but with ASSURANCE that He is ABLE to take care of EVERY and ALL needs. For the TRUE BELIEVER, He is their REST, ROCK, REFUGE, HOPE, A MIGHTY FORTRESS, and THEIR SALVATION, and like King David, They can DEPEND on Him at ALL TIMES. CAN YOU?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then He is NOT your REST, ROCK, REFUGE, HOPE, A MIGHTY FORTRESS or SALVATION. But He CAN be and WANTS to be, if you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ASK Him for His FORGIVENESS. And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS, God’s Son, died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and allow Him to be your REST, ROCK, REFUGE, HOPE, A MIGHTY FORTRESS and your SALVATION, and to provide a WAY of ESCAPING HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and GAINING HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS for ALL of ETERNITY. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
