I like old movies, especially black and white ones where everyone calls each other “dah-ling.” They are usually predictable and corny, yet fun and entertaining. The bad guys wear black and have curly mustaches, and the good guys wear white and have starched shirts!
During a recent film, a robbery was taking place in a home, and the owner fearfully searched for a safe place to hide his life savings. The music matched the scene and the victim was frantic. It’s similar to the way some people handle the problems and worries of life – looking for a place to put their trust, turning here and there, and not knowing which way to go.
If this describes you, then there’s good news for you today! Psalm 56:3 says, “When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.” If you can obey that simple, yet faith charged command, the God of all Gods, the Maker of all things and the Most Trustworthy Person of all times, will be there for You! He will show up. He’s incapable of lying or falling short of His promises, and His love for you is great. Go ahead, do it! Put your trust in Him today and quit looking frantically for that which can’t help you. Make a choice that is truly safe.
There is no gift more precious that we can give to God than our trust, and whoever puts their trust in Him won’t be disappointed. Give him your trust today. You can do this. Then watch how your movie will turn out.
