Fret-Free Friday: Trust
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
You had faith in the creature, and it disappointed you; in earthly good, and it faded away; in your own heart, and it deceived you. Now, have faith in God! Call upon Him in your trouble, try Him in your trial, trust Him in your need, and see if He will not honor the faith that honors Him. "Have faith in God"—oh, what sweet words of Jesus, spoken to allure your weary spirit to its divine and blessed rest.
The praying spirit breathe,
The watching power impart,
From all entanglements beneath
Call off my anxious heart.
My feeble mind sustain,
By worldly thoughts oppressed;
Appear, and bid me turn again
To my eternal rest.
God's voice is the best voice to hear, the most assuring voice to trust, the clearest voice to follow, the wisest voice to obey, the most recognizable voice to run to. Let the voice of God quiet your heart.
I will hear what God the LORD will speak, for He will speak peace to His people (Psalm 85:8).
Father in heaven, I entrust my future into Your hands because You are the beginning and the end. You know the end from the beginning so I entrust my hopes into Your hands. You never lie so I entrust my labors into Your hands. You are my exceedingly great reward so I entrust my life into Your hands. You are the One who does all things well.
