The little girl wouldn’t jump off the porch unless her daddy was there to catch her. Why? Because she was confident that he would catch her and swing her up in his strong arms. She placed herself in his keeping without fear or misgiving. You may have put this kind of trust in someone who betrayed you and let you down…someone who didn’t catch you or maybe even harmed you. You can forgive those who have mistreated you and persuade your mind that God will never let you down or betray you. He is not a man that He should lie; He is truth and you can rely on His truthfulness. Come before Him with confident trust…He will never fail you or leave you without support.
As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for you, the living God. In the name of Jesus, I resist discouragement because I expect you to act! For I know that I shall again have plenty of reason to praise you for all that you will do. You are my help! You are my God! I place my trust in you, and I shall again praise you for your wondrous help; you make me smile again, for you are my God. Amen and Amen.
Psalm 42 and 43
