Will We Trust Him?

Psalm 127 is my theme scripture this summer.  The Lord spoke these words to me Saturday morning, before the shootings took place in the USA.  God said:

Your trust in me is solidified in Psalm 127.  Your faith rises each time you quote it.  You may blog on this.  People are not yet aware of the trust they will need in me to navigate the days ahead.  “Men’s hearts will fail them because of fear.”  Fear is one of the greatest obstacles to people.  Many see themselves as alone and reason why bad things happen. They need to trust Me in the days ahead.

I got distracted Saturday morning and forgot to blog this.  My apologies!  It’s late in coming, but it is here. God wants to know:  Will we trust Him?  Will we believe Him? 

Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

According to Psalm 127, God has placed you and I in a:

  • House
  • Community
  • Place of rest
  • Family

Will we trust Him?  Will we believe Him?

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
