Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 May 3

 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength” (Isaiah 26:3-4).

Today’s Morsel:  The character trait of “trust” seems to be on the back burner of many.  People don’t seem to know who they can trust anymore.  Marriages seem to fail due to a lack of trust.  People are not hired for employment because employers don’t know if they can trust the applicant that is applying for the job or not, and many of them are not willing to take a chance because the applicant has no known character references.  Solomon tells us “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). If we trust in the Lord with all our heart, God will be a great character reference for us.

Sing:  Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey.

Thought For Today:  Trust God and He’ll be there for you.
