Psalms 125:1 They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.
Are you among the “they” that trust in the Lord? To answer that question in the affirmative there are three (3) characteristics that were stated in Proverbs 3:5-7 that you must possess. The first characteristic is refusing to lean on your own understanding, what is required instead is for you to depend totally on God’s wisdom.
The second characteristic of a person who trusts God is that they seek God’s direction or acknowledge God in all their ways. The third characteristic identified with the person who trusts God is that they possess a fear of God evidenced by doing what the word of God says.
It is important to trust God as it positions us to be an overcomer in all situations. Psalms 125:1 tells us that they that trust in the Lord shall be like Mount Zion. The main feature of Mount Zion that was highlighted is that it is unmovable. Mount Zion is the mountain on which Solomon built the magnificent temple and the place where Abraham sought to sacrifice Isaac. Given that it was there from the beginning of creation it would have gone through natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes, nevertheless it was not destroyed. The scripture said it abideth forever to mean that it remained standing. Trusting in the Lord does not mean that we will not face difficult circumstances, we will, but the assurance that we have is that when we do, we will come out victorious. Daniel trusted God and came out of the lion’s den. The three Hebrew boys also survived the fiery furnace because they trusted God. Put all your trust in God.
Life Application: Put all your trust in God by depending on His wisdom, consistently seeking his direction and choosing always to carry out the word of God.
Prayer: Lord, I will put my trust in you because you cannot and will not fail me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
