Psalms 9:10

The Benefits of Trusting God

The benefits of trusting God are immeasurable. While the Bible is filled with stories of those who didn’t trust God, it is also packed with stories of those who did! Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den and came out alive, prompting the king to worship God. David faced Goliath and conquered the giant. Esther came before the king even though it could result in death and saved a nation. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego walked into the blazing furnace and came out without a single cinched hair. Trusting in God has that kind of power. A kind of power that isn’t just reserved for those in the Bible, but a power that still lives today for you and me. A power that bends the knees of kings to worship, conquers giants, saves nations, and protects individuals.

Psalm 9:10 testifies to this power. For those who put their trust in God, He does not forsake them. This means that God will be with you in the trust journey and that’s a promise you can take to the bank. He will not give up, turn on, or go back on you or His word. He will protect, defend, and honor you though.

Maybe right now you’re facing a situation that calls out all the trust you can muster. The enemy may whisper sweet nothings into your ear to tempt you away from what is good and right, however, you must stand firm. Trust God’s process. The benefits of doing this will outshine what you can see this side of Heaven, but mostly, God will be on your side. Go with that knowledge as you make your decision to follow God and trust Him.
