In today’s world it is difficult to know who to trust. It’s hard to discern in whom or in what is worth investing. Is it worth it to pour my heart and soul into my job only to be laid off after years of service? Is it worth it to reveal my true heart to someone I love and risk being rejected? Is it worth it to save money to invest in the stock market just to lose it all in a flash? Is it worth investing in a dream that might not come true? Is it worth trusting in God when that means handing over the reigns of my life?
Psalm 20 was in my bible study last night from Lord, I Want to Know You (Arthur). As I read through it I thought about you all, my blogging friends. I wondered which of the above verses stuck out to each of you. I wondered who needed to hear about trust. I wondered who needed to be reminded that the name of the Lord has the power to save. I wondered who needed to be reminded that God will answer us when we call. And I wondered who, like me, needed to hear that God still grants us our hearts desires, and it is He who makes our plans succeed.
But as a pondered each of these scenarios I realized they all begin and end with trust. We must trust in the name of the Lord. So I did a little more research and I found this quotation relating to verse seven.
