Ps 91 (NKJV)

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

Quote for the day:

You need to trust even when you don’t understand.
Pastor Mark Benson

It doesn't seem overly profound, but it struck me last night as I sat in our Wednesday night service. To be sure, my pastor was talking about God, but I think it can also be applied to certain people (not everyone, for sure).

It's hard to trust, even God, when I don't understand what's going on around me. My childhood was turbulent and sometimes those doubts and fears will rise up when I least expect them and I struggle to put the past in its place--behind me.

In what ways have you had to trust, God or someone else, when you didn't understand? I'm not asking you to share here, but I do want you to think about it. Think about how much God deserves our trust, and how often we don't trust Him.



  1. Spot on, Ginger! I've been studying trust, too. In fact, since I've began writing in a serious way, I've had to step on that invisible bridge of faith often :)

  2. I have to keep 'indoctrinate' myself with the Truth to be able to trust.

  3. Trust is such a hard thing. I think it's because we are taught through bad experiences that trusting brings pain.

    It takes 'indoctrinating' ourselves with HIS truth to learn to trust HIM.

  4. So true. I have found myself praying about something... then worrying. Not a sign of trust at all. I believe God has challenged my heart to pray and trust, as this year has gone on. Because praying and worrying don't go together. Thanks for the encouragement. Trust has been an ever-present lesson for me this year. Glad to meditate on it again, here.
