I trust in the Lord for protection. So why do you say to me, "Fly to the mountains for safety!" The wicked are stringing their bows and setting their arrows in the bowstrings. They shoot from the shadows at those who do right. The foundations of law and order have collapsed. What can the righteous do? Psalm 11:1-3 NLT
How much do you really trust in God?
Are you the type who says you trust in God, then you go and do something that shows you really only trust in yourself? Are you willing to say you trust in the Lord BUT...?
And how are you at allowing others to trust in God? Would you rather give them advice about what they should be doing to save their own skin rather than wait around for God? Perhaps you can tell yourself you trust in the Lord and do a pretty good job of acting like it but when it comes to your loved ones you aren't so trusting.
When the foundations of law and order in our own worlds have collapsed, how long will we be able to continue to trust in the Lord for ourselves or for others?
God, we really want to trust you. We don't act like it very often, do we God? We are much better at trusting "9-1-1" or even ourselves. Forgive us for our lack of trust. Jesus trusted you all the way to the cross. We should too. In his name we pray. Amen.
