“ Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” (Proverbs 30:5)
When we put our trust in God, we can rest assured we are in good hands. But how do we know we can trust Him? Read His Word. Has He not made good on every promise? All throughout the bible, when people put their trust in Him, He helped them. Eventually they learned that by trusting in Him, they did not need to fear what would happen to them. They realized His power in helping them. Even when they had no idea what was going to happen, they trusted Him to take care of it and it became a shield to them. It gave them hope.
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible”. (Mark 10:27 KJV)
This particular verse has become one of my favorites. It not only reminds of God’s awesome power, but helps me to remain humbled by my own limitations. There are so many things I simply cannot do, know, understand, or change. But God can.
There was a song we used to sing when I was a child, “He’s got the whole world in His hands…” I remember posters of giant hands stretching out from the universe, with the earth sitting in them like a tennis ball. I thought “God must be pretty big” back then. Now I know He’s way bigger and more powerful than I can even imagine.
I am so thankful that I can trust God to take care of me, knowing that He can do anything.
