Trust. Have you ever stopped to think what the word “trust” actually means? It seems that we either just take it for granted as an ineffective word (“I trust you understand!”) or we go to the other extreme with the old adage, “trust no one.” The definition of “trust” is: “firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something.”
The Bible tells us we are to trust in the Lord. It also tells us what He will do when we do trust Him. "Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act." (Psalm 37:5) And in Proverbs 3:5-6 it says "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
The Bible not only tells us what He will do, it also tells us what happens to us when we trust Him. Our fear is removed ("He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD." Psalm 112:7). We are surrounded by love (“Steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the LORD." Psalm 32:10). We are safe ("The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is safe." Proverbs 29:25). We are blessed ("Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD." Jeremiah 17:7). We are also strengthened, which is our theme verse for this month’s Box of Blessings:
Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles.
I am so very excited about all the treasures in this month's Box of Blessings. I think you will be too!
I completely enjoyed reading the book, God's Favorite Place On Earth by Frank Viola. It is a very engaging account of the small town of Bethany and the life of Christ on this earth. I had never considered the importance of Bethany in the life of Jesus and this book truly lays out the compelling vision of a God who longs to make every human heart 'His favorite place". It will be a treasure to anyone you may share it with. It even has discussion questions for each chapter at the back of the book to expand your thinking on how to live as a "Bethany" in our world today, being set free to love, follow, and embrace Jesus like never before.
I felt the beautiful collection of hymns on the CD, The World's Favorite Hymns, would be the perfect match to the book. It has three discs that will truly bless anyone! As I listened to Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee it was these following lyrics that led me to choose the theme of Trust for this month’s Box:
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!
Do you know someone that needs to be reminded that trusting in the God who loves us, can melt the clouds of sin and sadness?
I was so surprised to discover that the first card in the assorted celebration pack of Christian greeting cards had the lyrics to Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee on the back. You’re going to love these cards that cover a whole variety of celebratory events.
To remind you of our theme verse this month, I’ve included a beautiful plaque with our theme verse on it. You can either hang it on a wall or stand it up on a table or desk. And it comes in a box perfect to give as a gift!
The impressive book, 52 Weeks Through the Psalms Devotional, will help you make the most of each week with the hope, comfort, and wisdom available to you in the book of Psalms. It will help you discover that psalms (like the hymns on the three CD set) are more than songs to be sung or music to be played but truth to be heard and learned.
Here’s what’s great about this month’s Box: All these treasures together can slide into the sweet “Trust in the Lord” gift bag that includes the reference of Isaiah 40:31.
