Those who trust in the LORD are as Mount Zion, which can’t be moved, but remains forever.
People put their trust in the stock market, their bank accounts, their job, the neighborhood they live in, or even the labels on the clothes they wear. They believe these things will help them sustain their popularity, their success, and the health and well-being of their relationships.
But some of them are disappointed, damaged, and even destroyed when stock markets crash, bank accounts dwindle, jobs come and go, and the time will eventually come when they retire and someone equally capable steps in to take their place. Sometimes, neighborhoods lose their prestige, and clothes go in and out of style right along with the seasons.
The Psalmist points out the better choice. That is, you can trust in the One true God who is the only God who will last forever.
God knows your gifts, your shortcomings, and the situation you are in at every moment. And He also knows something you cannot know–every single person who is in need of receiving His touch through you.
Pray: LORD, give me a heart that trusts fully in You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
