Psalm 37:3-4 HCSB
Having trust in someone means that you depend on that person in one way or another. As adults, we put our trust in many people. We trust in the energy company to keep your service running smoothly. We trust that the garbage will be picked up on the scheduled day. Our lives sometimes revolve around the trust we have in others to make our lives easier.
As the children of God, happiness comes when we are totally dependant on Him to meet our needs. This gives us the freedom to make the right choices because we know the outcome will be for our happiness and God's glory. Psalm 37:3 instructs us to "trust in the Lord and do good, dwell in the land and live securely". God can do what no human can. There is nothing beyond his reach. As Christians, we feel overwhelming joy knowing that our Heavenly Father protects us and makes sure all of the things we need are available.
Psalm 37:4 tells us to "take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your hearts desires". Our wants are met when we show God praise and gratitude for what we have been given. Christians automatically feel these things when we think of His goodness, we worship His faithfulness and thank Him constantly.
What a giving and gracious God we serve! His loving kindness, grace, and mercy bring immeasurable joy to those of us who totally depend on Him to live. Remember to thank God everyday for the everything that you have. Happiness will grow each day, and God will bless you for the praise.
Peace and Love,
