Psalm 40:4 – Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his Trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!
The beginning of Psalm 40 is about trusting in God as He hears and rescues those who turn to Him. In verse 4 we see that a man who is trusting in the Lord will be blessed. The man who trust in the Lord stays humble. In contrast to a person trusting in the Lord is one who is led away from the truth and follows a lie.
This is a great word for the times we are living in today. I must remember there is only one thing to completely trust and that is the Word of God. Jesus tells us in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” When I am truly following the Lord I am in His Word, serving -humbly submitted before Him. This keeps pride in check and not thinking we are our own gods or even worrying about what someone has done to me. Without trust in the Lord, one can become easily deceived and follow a lie straight from Satan, celebrated by media and politicians, without recognizing.
Thank you for the truth in your Word! Let the power of the Holy Spirit lead and guide me to be in your Word and humbly follow you to trust you completely and follow you faithfully to glorify you.
