Fully Trusting the Savior


“I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices. My flesh also will rest in hope. For you will not leave my soul in Sheol, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm16:8-11

We humans are incredibly emotional! We experience joy, disappointment, hope, sadness, love and distrust within the same hour. Many things bombard our day and move our thoughts and feelings in multiple directions. 

Have you ever gotten up in the morning and have feelings of doom and gloom? You try to put your finger on the reason you feel that way, but it really makes no sense. 

You need to shake it off and make a conscious decision to sit down with your Bible and turn to prayer. Stability comes when we hold onto our good thoughts, hopes and dreams.

Answers unfold when we put our full trust in our Savior Jesus Christ. He is often referred to as our anchor. He encourages our hearts and minds when we put our focus on Him, bringing peace, as we look for answers and direction. He literally calms the storm.

Trusting in the Lord lifts your heart above the circumstances of life and brings freedom from the burdens that the world sends our way, including our unstable emotions.

Jesus promises goodness in the land of the living and a forever gladness and joy with the gift of eternal life. Take a moment and dwell on living eternally in the presence of the Lord. There will be no sin there!

Raise your eyes, heart and mind towards the Lord today. Allow His joy to invade your life and bring healthy wholeness to your inner being in the here and now.

Seek and you will find!
