Trust that the Lord is Your Rock

Isaiah 26:4 “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal” (NIV).

When we put our trust in the Lord, Jesus Christ, we are telling God that we have given you our heart. We trust that you are guiding our lives and that Jesus died for our sins on the cross. We have faith that you reconciled Jesus to you and us to Him. By giving God our heart, His laws, His will for our lives, and peace will be ours forever. Jeremiah 31:33 states, “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people” (NIV). We must first turn to Him, invite His Holy Spirit into our lives and God will place us on solid ground; a Rock that will never break eternally.

We must do this without questioning God’s ways, which are perfect. Giving God our heart, in fullness, allows us to get the understanding of His Word and will for our lives. It allows His Spirit to operate in our lives. John 14:15-17 states, “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you” (NIV). Spending alone time with God and allowing The Holy Spirit to minister to us, comfort us, and be our intercessor will increase our personal relationship with God and understanding of His will. Jesus further stated in John 14:23-27, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (NIV). Amen!!!
