Psalms 31:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
In Thee Do I Put My Trust
We need to put our trust in the Lord and not in man. One man we like to trust more than any other is often ourselves. We think we can figure, scheme and plan our way out of about anything. If we think it through we think we can just fix it. It does not work that way. There are just some things in life you are never going to be able to fix. Restitution is a try at fixing past wrongs related to money. But most wrongs cannot be fixed by money. We really need to just trust God that He is greater than all of the issues of life.
Let Me Never Be Ashamed
We will not be ashamed if we move out by faith and trust God. That is not always easy. God sometimes rewards a wreckless abandon toward Him. We need to just quit trying and let God do what He wants. When we are delivered, it is not because we deserve it but rather because of His righteousness. You cannot earn God’s favor. The Christian life is not tit for tat with God. If He chooses to bless us, praise God. If He chooses to let us go through a fire, praise God. It is never wrong to put your trust in the Lord. When David decided to go out on a limb for God, he was almost prodding God by saying let me never be ashamed. He was saying, “you don’t want these heathen thinking you can’t take care of me so make sure you come through when I trust you.” Moses did the same thing with God on a regular basis. It kept the children of Israel from getting wiped out more than once. In thee Lord do I put my trust.
