Loving To Trust His Provision

“Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
Psalm 91:14-16 (NIV)

Talk about an incredible blessing from the Lord! Throughout Psalm 91 we see the abundant provision, protection, and deliverance that God provides for those who love Him and trust in Him.

All day yesterday I was thinking about how hard it is for me to truly trust the Lord in everything. There are things that I put fully into His hands, and other things that I just can’t surrender. Rather than going to the Lord with my fists clenched tightly, I need to open them up to Him and surrender my heart, my soul, and my life to Him.

God longs to shower us with His unfailing love. Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” Not only is God on our side, but He has a perfect plan for us and longs to satisfy us with our hearts’ desires. The more we love Him, the easier it is to trust in Him, and we continue to see more of His plan unfold. Today, may we rest in His incredible promises and confidently trust that He truly desires what is BEST for us!

God, sometimes it is so hard for me to trust you. You are my refuge, my fortress, and my God in whom I trust (Psalm 91:2). I look at your abundant provisions and I’m so grateful. Seeing all of your incredible promises, I can’t believe that I ever have trouble trusting in you, but I confess that sometimes it’s so hard to surrender control. Lord, I pray that I will trust you, call to you, and love you with all of my heart. You alone can satisfy my heart, and I pray that I will trust completely in you.
