Confident Trust

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.   – Isaiah 41:10 NKJV

Do you actually believe this?

Is God with you? Is He your God? Will God strengthen you and even uphold you?

Those who have confident trust in God are able to answer YES to those questions.


He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.   – Psalm 112:7 NKJV

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord.  – Psalm 112:7 AMPC

Let’s look at this verse in the King James Version with links to Hebrew word meanings from Strong’s concordance. Simply click on the links to learn more about these words.

  • heart
  • fixed
  • trusting
  • in the Lord

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart H3820 is fixed, H3559 trusting H982 in the LORD. H3068–   – Psalm 112:7 KJV

Here is what Charles Spurgeon said about this powerful little verse.

…resigning everything into the hands of God. “His heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.” He is neither fickle nor cowardly; when he is undecided as to his course he is still fixed in heart: he may change his plan, but not the purpose of his soul. His heart being fixed in solid reliance upon God, a change in his circumstances but slightly affects him; faith has made him firm and steadfast, and therefore if the worst should come to the worst, he would remain quiet and patient, waiting for the salvation of God.

I want to live like this! How about you?

Plan For Difficult Times

Your life might be going well right now or you might be in the middle of a mess. As someone has said we are usually in a difficult time, just coming out of one or about to enter a difficult season. Sooner or later problems, pain, hard times and loss are sure to come your way. Because many of us tend to procrastinate about so much in life, we are often caught by surprise when painful events barge into our lives.

How about preparing a go-to formula to help us during the inevitable hard times?

Let’s look at an approach to painful times that may be helpful in any season.


In her book “Though the Mountains Shake“, Amy Carmichael tells about her meeting Andrew Murray while they were both in England during the year 1895. She shares her impression of him and how he handled a painful time he experienced.

The following is taken from Amy Carmichael’s writing about Andrew Murray.

“I knew that his books were very good. Not that I had read one of them, but a neat row of them, dressed in sober grey, lived in my mother’s room, and she and everybody said how good they were. Was he as good as his books? He was better; for there was not only goodness, there was a delicious dry humor, dauntless courage, and the gentleness and simplicity of a dear child. And he was very loving.”

“Then something painful happened. This is how he met it: He was quiet for a while with his Lord, then he wrote these words for himself”

First He brought me here, it is by His will I am in this strait place: in that fact I will rest.

Next, He will keep me here in His love, and give me grace to behave as His child.

Then, He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn, and working in me the grace He means to bestow.

Last, in His good time He can bring me out again–how and when He knows.

Let me say I am here,

  1. By God’s appointment
  2. In His keeeping
  3. Under His training
  4. For His time

I am sure that Andrew Murray still felt the pain but he knew where to look for help and Who to trust to bring him through. Trusting in Jesus is the only way.

It is a mystery perhaps, but when we are at the lowest places we may sense the nearness of Jesus more keenly than at any other time. I know I have.

Jesus knows well all our sorrows in all seasons. See Isaiah 53:3-5 and Hebrews 4:14-15

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. See John 14

Corrie ten Boom

Tapestry

Have you ever found yourself confused and questioning God’s plan for your life? Certainly, God’s ways are often mysterious.

When Corrie ten Boom spoke to audiences, she would often hold up a piece of embroidery with hundreds of tangled threads hanging from it. Many wondered if she was holding up the wrong side by mistake.

As she held up the messy side of the embroidery she would ask “Does God always grant us what we ask for in prayers? Not always. Sometimes He says ‘No’. That is because God knows what we do not know. Look at this piece of embroidery. The wrong side is chaos. But look at the beautiful picture on the other side- the right side.” Then she would flip the cloth over and reveal an elaborately embroidered crown- symbolizing our crown of eternal life. The crown was intricately stitched and had threads of many colors, including gold, silver, and pearls.

“We see now the wrong side; God sees His side all the time. One day we shall see the embroidery from His side, and thank Him for every answered and unanswered prayer.”

This mysterious tapestry of your life is an intricate combination of events, each added at just the right time and in the right order. You can’t see the pattern but you can trust God to complete the design.


The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lordendures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands. 

 – Psalm 138:8  NKJV

And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.

-Philippians 1:6  AMPC


Corrie ten Boom often shared the following poem.

The author is unknown. The poem is titled The Tapestry of My Life or The Weaving

My Life is but a weaving between my Lord and me; I cannot choose the colors He worketh steadily. Oft times He weaveth sorrow And
