Today’s Reading:

Psalm 40:1-8;

Hosea 14:1-9;

Matthew 12:1-8


To trust in the Lord simply means to believe in the Lord’s power to deliver for us what we need whether or not we are aware of such need and whether or not it feels our needs are delaying and are not forthcoming. Trusting in the Lord does not require us to give our own set time to God as to when we want to see things happen in our lives, it simply requires us to believe that God that has called us is a ‘rewarder of those that diligently seek Him’ (Heb11:6).

In Psalm 40:1-8, the psalmist recounted how the Lord came through for Him when he waited on the Lord patiently. A new song was put in his mouth by the Lord when he patiently waited and trusted in God’s power to help him. It is also important we note that not trusting in the Lord our maker can slowly take us down the drain of life. That we begin to experience things not consistent with the plans of God for our life like the Israelite experienced as recounted by prophet Hosea in Hosea 14. It specifically puts in verse 1 that “O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity”. Sometimes, it is the little recognition for of the efficacy of the presence of God in our lives that removes the working wonders of God that we see every day in our lives. Keep trusting in God whether in trying situations or beautiful ones, our God is ever faithful to His own.


  1. To trust in the Lord and lean not on your understanding. The fact remains that our human understanding and brains will fail us at times, over thinking gives us headaches, confusion and so on. But leaving the confusion on the altar of God gives today peace (Prov 3:5-6).

  2. The arms of flesh will fail you. Sometimes the situation we face in life is bigger than what the flesh can carry hence we need to trust in God (Psalm 146:3-4).

  3. Jesus never changes. While everything on earth is subject to change except Christ, He is our constant help in that very time of need (Heb 13:8, Psalm 46:1).

  4. Trusting in the Lord requires discipline. We constantly keep reminding ourselves that our God is faithful so that the challenges of life will not take us unaware. It requires a deliberate effort to believe that God is a rewarder of them that seek him (Heb 11:6).




  1. Lord, help me not to be wearied or carried away by the cares of this world that will make me to stop trusting in you, in Jesus name.

  2. Father, I pray for your help that my faith in You will stand the test of time, in Jesus name.

  3. Lord help me not to relent in trusting You in any way and area of my life so that I will not backslide, in Jesus name.

  4. Lord strengthen Your Church and give the grace to continue to trust in you, in Jesus name.

  5. Lord send committed and conscientious labourers into Your vineyard, in Jesus name.
