Trust In Him




"Trust in him." Psalm 37:5

The word "trust" is the heart of faith and is the Old Testament word given
to the infant, or early, stages of faith. The word "faith" conveys more an
act of the will, while the word "belief" conveys an act of the mind or
intellect, but trust is the language of the heart. The words "faith" and
"belief" refer more to a truth believed or to something expected to
happen.

Trust implies more than this, for it sees and feels and it leans on those
who have a great, living, and genuine heart of love. Therefore let us
"trust also in him" (Ps 37:5 KJV) through all the delays, in spite of all the
difficulties, and in the face of all the rejection we encounter in life.
And in spite of our feelings and evidence to the contrary, and even when we
cannot understand our way or our situation, may we still "trust also in him;
[for] he shall bring it to pass." The way will open, our situation will be
changed, and the end result will be peace. The cloud will finally be
lifted, and the light of eternal noonday will shine at last.
