Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. (Psalms 143:8)
- “Tell me you love me”.
- “Show me I can trust you”.
- “Tell me what I should do”.
Simple requests aren’t they? How often we look to others to meet these very basic needs of the human heart. But, more often than not, people fail us.
God never fails.
We can love Him and be loved by Him, without fear that He will ever take His love from us. God’s love is strong, enduring and patient. God’s love is perfect. God’s love is Agape – without condition. We can put our trust in Him with confidence that He will never betray that trust. We can trust Him with our deepest thoughts and our greatest fears. We can trust Him with our hopes, our cares, even our eternal souls. We can seek His counsel with the assurance that He will lead us in the right way. When our world is dark, His word is light. When things are uncertain, His word is sure. When we are surrounded by the noise of empty words and false promises, His word is truth. Lift up your soul to Him, surrender your everything to Him, He will meet all your needs.
