When David was facing all kinds of troubles, he proclaimed that he trusted in the Lord. See, even though troubles come, we can trust God with them because we realize that he works all things out for the good of His people. When I was younger I really wanted to trust God more; in fact, I used to pray for more faith and trust in Him. Then God revealed something to me in The Pursuit of God by AW Tozer – He taught me that I need to spend time with him in order to trust Him more. Trust is something that is built over time through a relationship, and building trust in my relationship with my Heavenly Father is really no different than the process of building trust with a friend. David trusted God because he had a relationship with God, and that enabled David to say, "But I trust in the Lord." Sure bad things are happening, but I trust in the Lord. Things are going my way, but I trust in the Lord. When we trust in the Lord we confess that our problems are in the hands of a loving God who cares very deeply about His children. When troubles in my life come, I can trust in the Lord.
You are here: / / But I trust in the Lord (Psalms 27, 31, 34, and 52)
