Today you should read: Psalm 40
Remember that season of life where you felt as though God was not answering a single prayer. It felt as though His presence was not present and you were left alone in the dark dungeon of suffering, confusion, trial and grief? Remember that season?
Remember that season of life when you felt as though you couldn’t go on and right before losing hope God in His infinite power spoke in such a clear-cut manner that you knew for a fact that prayers had been answered.
And to be quite honest the only verse I really want to key in on is verses 4 and 5. This whole passage is jammed packed but for some reason verses 4 and 5 is astounding to me. Take a look at what it says,
“Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud to those who turn aside to false gods. Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare.”
That passage is packed full of glory! Think about it word by word.
“Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust” – go back with me to the first paragraph – the individual who makes the Lord is trust looks like the type of believer Paul is encouraging the Corinthians to be in 1 Corinthians 15:58. No matter what happens if you put your trust in God you can TRUST that He remains the same yesterday, today, and forever and He is One who is trustworthy.
Now take a moment and think about the second half of verse 5.
“The things you planned for us no on can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declary.”
How true is this of our lives. Take a moment and look at the computer your using. WOW. Now take a moment to look around at the room you are sitting in – four walls, maybe a little decoration, your safe. Now think about the people God has blessed you with in your life. Now take a moment to think about the salvation He has given us and not only that but the sinned He covered by slaying His only Son and pouring out his Righteous judgment on Jesus (that you deserved). Now take a moment to think about this – what about all the blessings we take for granted? What about the accidents He protected us from that we will only know about when we see Him face to face.
Bottom line church – we serve a Good Good God. A God of GOOD NEWS – the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Rejoice today knowing that God is worthy of our trust – He is solid and know that if we were to write out all the things he has done and has yet to do – the pages would be innumberable! What a mighty God we serve!
Worship God – Enjoy God – Be useful to His Kingdom!
