Whom or what are you trusting in today?

The theme this year in our Women’s Ministry has been Trust. We have focused on this one word all year. And as we’re about to move on to another theme for the coming year, I realize how much I still need to grow in trusting God.

  • Trusting God for my daily needs
  • Trusting God for the future
  • Trusting God for direction in decision-making
  • Trusting God to keep me on His path, not my own
  • Trusting God in the storms of life that spring up without warning

Trust. Will I ever fully grasp what it means to trust God?

This morning, God reminded me of this word as I read Psalm 61. David didn’t use the word trust in this psalm, but it’s implied. He wrote,

“From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength against the enemy. Let me dwell in Your tent forever; let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings.” (Ps. 61: 2-4)

David trusted God. He knew his strength was in God, not in himself. He was confident he could trust God, the Rock, his Refuge, a Tower of Strength, his Shelter.

What do you need to trust God for today? Write those things down and give them to God to handle. Trust Him to lead you and strengthen you. Thank Him for being your Rock, Refuge, and Tower of Strength.

“Father, keep reminding me where my strength lies. Keep me aware of Your protection of me today. You’ve got my life in Your hands, and I can rest in You as I draw near to my Rock and Tower of Strength. Thank You for drawing me close in the shelter of Your wings. Thank You that I can trust You, regardless of what is going on around me.”
