“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD”

“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD”

Psalm 11:1 “In the LORD I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”?”

Psalm 11:7 “For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.”

Taken from today’s reading in “The One Year Bible” by Zondervan.

1. David an example of trusting God when faced with an adversary.

Psalm 11:1 “In the LORD I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”?”

Psalm 11:7 “For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.”

David was no stranger to being hunted by his adversaries.
Thus, David’s experiences are a great learning example to us.

Let’s look at what happened here, and what David said.

#1. David was actively walking with God in this time of trouble.
He was putting his trust in God.

#2. David asked a question about his adversaries.
He wanted to know how they could say what they were saying to him.
They wanted him to run away from where he was and was supposed to be.

#3. David knew and declares several wonderful truths about God.
Psalm 11:7 For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.
The LORD is righteous.
The LORD loves righteousness.
The LORD beholds the upright.

So, what can we learn from these verses?

1. God’s people do have an adversary like David did.

2. Our adversaries would like nothing more than for God’s people to run away, and not keep trusting God.

3. The truths is, our God is able to help us during times of attack and difficulty.

4. If you are being attacked, God will help you, David kept trusting God and found peace and victory

A prayer:

Father thank You that we can trust You at any time just like David did. Thank You also LORD for who You are, and what You are like. You can be trusted. You are righteous LORD. You love righteousness and You keep Your eye on His people.
Help us LORD to benefit from David’s example. In Christ’s name. Amen.
