“For by You I can run through a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect! The Word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in Him.” (Psalm 18:29-30)
In this Psalm, David is declaring his absolute faith and confidence that God’s Word will come through for him. Even though he is facing death, He is convinced that God will deliver Him. What faith! What TRUST!
And that is what it really boils down to: do I really trust God to do it for me–me personally. On some level most Christians believe that God CAN heal and set free. Then again some Christians don’t even believe that anymore. The real question is: do you believe He will heal and set YOU free. Then it becomes a matter of trust.
Trust is built and earned in a relationship. A give and take relationship with regular time spent together. When you talk to someone day after day and spend time with them, trust builds and you can talk to them about secret things. You trust them to have your back because you KNOW them more intimately.
What would happen if you did this with Jesus Christ? If you spent day after day with Him, in His presence and talking with Him day after day? Trust would begin to build in your heart and mind towards Him. With trust comes confidence and security. And that is when you will know that not only can He heal you but He WANTS to heal YOU specifically.
We all tend to trust those we know have the knowledge and wisdom to help with difficult problems. Why go it alone when God has ALL the answers and He is perfectly willing to help you through the troubles you have? The only cost is your time to get to know Him so YOU can trust Him.
It is all a matter of trust. God can be trusted with our hearts. We give our hearts to evil men and women all the time. People we know deep inside don’t really love us, yet we trust them anyway. Why not trust God? He actually CAN be trusted! You will find that your life will be so much fuller and full of peace and purpose once you yield to Him.
