Psalm 9:10 reads:
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
This requires "knowing" or having personal experience with God; then "trusting" Him with assurance.
Pastor distinquished "knowing" God, "believing" in Him and"trusting" Him. Pastor gave the example that we might know what a bullet proof vest is, we might believe it can protect but are we willing to put one on and let another person shoot at us? That would reflect trust.
Pastor identified several names of God. One which I found particularly interesting was Counselor (Is 9:6).
A counselor does not FIX things. He listens, empathizes and gives good instructions or advice. The question then becomes... do we follow the instructions or advise?
I had a hard time chosing from the many good videos for this song.
I liked the song version by Kari Jobe as well as the Hillsong version.
Several of the Jobe versions did not have words so
I decided I liked the images on this video with the words.
A Verse for Today:
Proverbs 3:5 (New International Version, ©2011)
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
I prayed this morning for healing for many and, more importantly, to strengthen trust for many.
