Trust Means Joy! Do you believe that today?
I have a special guest writer for our blog today. His name is C.H. Spurgeon. Charles Haddon Spurgeon (June 19, 1834 – January 31, 1892) was a British Reformed Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the “Prince of Preachers.” But first watch these two praise songs called “Trust in the Lord,” and go from old school to new school.
Trust in the Lord by Rob & Heidi:
Trust in the Lord by Point of Grace:
You must Trust in the Lord, and Receive Joy!
Joy Unspeakable and Full of Glory.
Do you want that today? I know I do.
Father, I will trust in You. I will not lean to my own understanding and in all of my ways I will acknowledge You, and you will direct my path unto righteousness. Thanks Holy Spirit for your comfort and help in times of needs, as I give my cares to you, and You will rain down your blessings of joy on me. I receive that now in Jesus Name. Amen.
Trust Means Joy by C.H. Spurgeon
“For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.” (Psalm 33:21)
“The root of faith produces the flower of heart-joy. We may not at the first rejoice, but it comes in due time. We trust the Lord when we are sad, and in due season He so answers our confidence that our faith turns to fruition, and we rejoice in the Lord. Doubt breeds distress, but trust means joy in the long run.
The assurance expressed by the psalmist in this verse is really a promise held out in the hands of holy confidence. Oh, for grace to appropriate it. If we do not rejoice at this moment, yet we shall do so, as surely as David’s God is our God.
Let us meditate upon the Lord’s holy name that we may trust Him the better and rejoice the more readily. He is in character holy, just, true, gracious, faithful, and unchanging. Is not such a God to be trusted? He is all wise, almighty, and everywhere present; can we not cheerfully rely upon Him? Yes, we will do so at once and do so without reserve. Jehovah-Jireh will provide; Jehovah-Shalom will send peace; Jehovah-Tsidkenu will justify; Jehovah-Shammah will be forever near; and in Jehovah-Nissi we will conquer every foe.
They that know Thy name will trust Thee; and they that trust Thee will rejoice in Thee, O Lord.”
Trust in the Lord/ Trust and Obey by Beverly Crawford:
Did you make your decision? I hope you are hearing the message of the day, and not being worried and growing tired in your mind,“But let all those that put their trust in the Lord rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee (Psalm 5:11).”
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
