PUT YOUR TRUST!
"Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him" (Psalm 2:12).
The Coming of Christ will divide people into two groups. One will be those who put their trust on God and thereby will be meeting Him when He comes in, as blessed people. The other group is those who ignore Him and thereby will be left helpless and will be caught in the hands of Antichrist ultimately.
When a child gets frightened on seeing someone in the street, it runs towards its mother, embraces her tightly and buries its face in her bosom. This will be the right example for putting one’s trust in God. Just like this example, when you come across troubles and tribulations, you have to run towards His presence and put your trust in Him alone. Place your entire hope on Him and seek your refuge in Him.
We see in the Scripture, a huge storm blowing in the life of Jairus. His daughter was sick and was getting closer to death. He did not know where and towards whom to run and finally decided to put his trust on God.
The Scripture says, "And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed and she will live" (Mark 5:22, 23). Jesus made the daughter of Jairus rise alive from death as it is written as “Those who put their trust in Him are blessed.”
There were two sisters in Bethany by name Martha and Mary. Martha was more attracted towards domestic commitments where else the preference of Mary was to sit at the feet of Jesus eagerly. She chose the good part which will not be taken away from her (Luke 10:42).
A woman, who was a sinner, put her trust on Jesus, held His feet firmly and poured the fragrant oil on them. The blessing she received was that the numerous sins which she had committed were forgiven for her (Luke 7:38-48). "He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him" (Proverbs 30:5).
When evils and troubles surround you, never put your trust on the politicians or the bureaucrats because that could bring defeat alone. When many of his enemies surrounded Julius Caesar and pierced their swords on him, he ran towards his friend and put his trust on him with the hope that he would provide refuge to him. But he also pierced his sword just as others did and Julius Caesar had to die pathetically.
Dear children of God, it is always better to rely upon God than putting the faith on men. He just calls you with love and says, “Come to me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Mathew 11:28).
To meditate: "I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust" (Psalm 91:2).
