All too often, these days, I hear the phrase, “I don’t know how to trust anymore.” And, while it’s true that words like those are an indictment on our society, I can honestly say, the worse things have gotten, the more I have learned to trust.
Trust in God.
Men, women and children, they will all disappoint us, and some will carry out that disappointment to a breaking point inside of us that, unless we know Christ intimately, will cause a major rift in our lives. But I will say it again, this is only in the event that we are not closely familiar with the Lamb of Galilee, God in man, Jesus the Christ.
For, by knowing him, we know the suffering and disappointment he went through for OUR sake; he was mocked, persecuted, scorned and beaten; Yet with a single command, he could have brought down a vengeance upon man that the world had never seen, and even left this world a mere uninhabited rock.
Instead, He chose the Cross, fully aware of its pain, its torture. He chose the nails, knowing that God knew what He was doing, and had sent His only Son here, for the purpose of wiping away the sin that separated us from Him.
It took a sacrifice, Holy and blameless. And Jesus’ unwavering Trust in God is why we now can go to God in prayer, seeking Him, and we can rejoice that even though we may stumble, we may fall, we may wander and we may give up for a while, we can still reach out to Him, and in that very moment He will catch us!
Trust in God.
I hope the songs you hear in this edition of Gospel Music Roundup will draw you into a closer trust relationship with the King of Kings, and that in the music, as it winds its way from your ear to your heart, you can again see that the one thing we CAN trust in this world and in these times, is God alone.
Trust In God.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.”
