“Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in HIM AT ALL TIMES, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us [a fortress and a high tower]. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!” (Psalms 62:8 AMP)
I like the way the Amplified bible emphasizes this verse, ALWAYS TRUST, LEAN and RELY UPON GOD, we should know that these are manifestations of our love for God! Our enemy, the devil, tries to replace or “trust” with “worry”, that’s why Jesus said:
“Therefore I tell you, DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR LIFE…Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?” (Luke 12:22, 25)
As any worrier knows, the only thing worrying changes is our health! My grandson Aidan Lawson was born deaf, we did not know this until latter on when after thorough examinations, the Doctor told Amanda that they should learn “sign” language because Aidan would never be able to hear! Caleb Bolanos, the Middle School band director was leading us in worship, beautifully playing his trumpet at our local church, the Lord spoke to me to have Amanda go get Aidan and bring him up front to have our pastor and Caleb Bolanos pray for Aidan and I TRUSTED THE LORD and obeyed Him! God healed Aidan, the doctor said “there is nothing wrong with Aydan’s ability to hear“, indeed a miracle!!! Now Aidan is an “A” student, plays the trumpet and loves Jesus!!
“Those who know your name TRUST IN YOU, for you, LORD, have NEVER FORSAKEN those who seek you.” (Psalms 9:10)
Say it with me, “I will trust in the Lord with ALL my heart”…Bill Stockham
