But as for me, I trust in YOU, O LORD,
I say, “YOU are my GOD.”
This statement was made by my Beloved LORD GOD’s servant during the time he in was in great distress because of the physical and verbal attacks against him (Psalm 31:9-13). Throughout Psalm 31, though he assessed and prayed about the trouble he was faced with, he didn’t succumb to fear and defeat because of his trust in The LORD GOD.
Why did he trust The LORD GOD? Because he knew HIM (Psalm 31:19-21) and had experienced HIS lovingkindness and deliverance before (Psalm 31:3-8, Psalm 31:23-24). This faithful servant, did not let the present circumstances cause him to forget all that our Beloved LORD GOD had done for him (Psalm 103:2), he indeed knew where his help came from (Psalm 121:2-3).
Each one of us who have experienced the goodness of The LORD GOD, should have the same heart displayed in Psalm 31:14: but as for me, I trust in YOU, O LORD, I say, “YOU are my GOD.”
If you say “I trust HIM”, but life’s circumstances causes you to collapse, do you really trust HIM?
To truly trust GOD, is to have complete confidence in, total reliance upon, and unquestioning certainty about HIM. This type of trust comes only with both experience and a believing heart. The children of Israel experienced great miracles of deliverance (Exodus chapters 7-12) and provision (Nehemiah 9:21) yet they never believed (Hebrews 3:16-19, Hebrews 4:1-2).
Just as you do not know the path of the wind, and how bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman; so you do not know the activity of GOD WHO makes all things (Ecclesiastes 11:5). So quit complaining about your life and your circumstances (Numbers 11:1) and began to trust GOD, that truly all things are being worked together for good (Romans 8:28) because you love Him and HE has a purpose for calling you.
“Woe to the one who quarrels with his MAKER —
An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth!
Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’
Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no hands’?
