Faith As A Trust – Part 2
“ON THE holy hills stands the city [of Jerusalem and the temple] God founded.” (Psalm 87:1 – AMP)
A believer who has learned to trust, does not give in to panic and confession, but remains calm and secure. In Psalm 37:5, David said, “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him to help you do it, and he will.” more literally the verse says, “and He is doing it”. Two things are required of us. The first is an act: ‘Commit’. The second is an attitude: ‘Trust’. The act of commitment leads to the attitude of Trust.
David assured us that, as long as we continue in this attitude of Trust, God ‘is doing it’. In other words God is working out the thing that we have committed to Him. The key to complete Trust in God is Commitment. Committing a matter to the Lord is like taking cash to the bank and depositing it into your account. Once you have received your tellers receipt, you no longer need to be concerned about the safety of your money. It is ironic that people have no problem trusting a bank to take care of the money they have deposited, but find it much harder to trust God concerning some vital, personal matter that they have committed to Him.
You need the Holy Spirits official ‘receipt’, acknowledging that God has accepted your commitment. Trust is like all forms of fruit. It needs to be cultivated, and it passes through various stages of development before it reaches full maturity.
My Father grants me clear signs of His goodness and comforts me in my way that lifts me up from life’s many troubles, in Jesus Name, Amen.
