So many times, particularly during a fiery trial, we hear from well meaning individuals “Trust in The Lord and whatever will be will be.” However, when we search the Bible, there is nothing that alludes to or substantiates the latter, common part of that phrase.
God’s Word is replete with the promises that He has made for those that have put their confidence in Him. For example, in Psalm 37:3, we are told ” Trust in The Lord and do good. So you will dwell in the land and be nourished in safety.” Psalm 40, Verses 1 through 3 proclaim “I waited patiently for The Lord. He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the desolate pit out of the miry bog and set my feet upon a rock making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in The Lord.” Isaiah 53:5 states “For He was wounded for my transgressions; He was bruised for my iniquities. Upon Him was the chastisement that made us whole and by His stripes we were healed.”
Whatever our issue may be, we already have the assurance in His Word of a victorious outcome. As we yield our hearts to Him, we will see those promises made manifest in our lives.
