Time To Trust!
 

Psalms 62:5-8My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

 

The psalmist reminds us here first of all of who our God is and then tells us that there is never a time when we cannot wholly trust Him! What a blessing!  How can this be so?

 

We can trust our God at all times because we can trust:

 

THE TRUTH OF HIS SCRIPTURES!

           

2Timothy 3:14-16 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

 

God has blessed us with His precious inspired, infallible Word! We have His precious promises which we know will never fail!

 

We can trust our God at all times because we can trust:

 

THE TESTIMONY OF HIS SAINTS!

 

Hebrews 11:32-38 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens….”

 

Have we not read the great encouraging stories in God’s word of all the great victories our God has brought over and over and over again to His children? When there seemed to be absolutely no hope, God stepped in to once again show that he is ever faithful!

 

We can trust our God at all times because we can trust:

 

THE TOTALITY OF HIS SACRIFICE!

 

John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

            Could we possibly ask for more evidence of God’s love and care for us, than knowing that He gave His only begotten Son for us? The Lamb of God came to take away the sins of the world!  Can we not trust Him at all times?

We can trust our God at all times because we can trust:

 

THE TRANSCENDENCE OF HIS SALVATION!

 

Romans 1:16-18 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

 

A salvation so wonderful and magnificent, far beyond our human comprehension. Jesus Christ gave Himself, taking our sins upon Him and imputing to us His righteousness! We can surely trust Him without exception!

 

We can trust our God at all times because we can trust:

 

THE TREASURE OF HIS SEAL!

 

Ephesians 1:13-14 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

 

He set His seal within us! He made us His tabernacle! Our body is the temple of God!

 

Oh yes, this too is a time, like all times past and present and future, when we can most wholly and surely TRUST OUR GOD!
