Trust In God

Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing
(Psalm 34:10)

Turkish believed a lion sleeps in the heart of every brave man. Even one as strong as the young lions may lack and suffer hunger; but David testified of God’s greater provision for those who trust in Him.

Just as in Job case In the book of JOB 4, Eliphaz calls upon him to remember the advice he has given to others as a helper of the weak.

We are not all like Job, but we all have Job’s God. Though we have neither risen to Job’s wealth, nor will, probably, ever sink to Job’s poverty, yet there is the same God above us if we be high, and the same God with his everlasting arms beneath us if we be brought low; and what the Lord did for Job, He will do for us, not precisely in the same form, but in the same spirit, and with like design. Job’s life ended long and blessed. He was well rewarded as a warrior who won a great battle for God’s glory.

David was sure that the one who did taste and see – or, who trusted in God – would not be forsaken. God would make him blessed. As David describes the trust in the Lord, it is rooted in action, not religious feelings. “David is saying that trust in the Lord is doing right, that is, that it involves obedience.”

Lest we forget that God’s blessing is in Jesus Christ and received by faith.

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
