Wisdom from the Psalms 5/8


May 8

Psalms 56:11
In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

Eleanor looked one last time out of the airplane window. Through she couldn't make out individual faces, she knew her family was there somewhere. It was really beginning to sink in that she wouldn't see them for a long time. The decision to go into missionary service had been difficult, but she was till certain it was the right thing to do. That didn't make leaving any easier. They only thing to do was put her trust in God and see where He would lead.
Trust is a tricky thing. It is difficult to put our trust in others, because we can't be sure whether they will value it or not. That fear should not apply when it comes to putting our trust in God. He will guard it even better than we do ourselves. No one can hurt us, once we put our trust in God. He will follow us to the ends of the earth to make sure we know of His great love.
Prayer: Wherever I go, Lord, I need to know that You are with me. I will put my trust in You, knowing that You will always do what is best for me. Help me to trust You more each day. Amen.
