Total Trust

Thursday, 5-12-2013

Readings For the day:

Isaiah 26:1-6
Psalm 118:1, 8-9, 19-21, 25-27
Matthew 7:21, 24-27

Reflection:

Trust in the Lord Forever, for he is an eternal rock.-isaiah 26:4.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in Men.-Psalm 118:8

Men tends to disappoint, men do not know what tomorrow may offer, men cannot supply all what we need, Men is weak, Men is deficient of all wisdom, only God has it all. This is not to say we should live in isolation or not to trust people around but Christ should be our “all in all” trust. Total trust in the Lord means submitting to the will of the Father, heeding his call and acting on his words. It is not enough to say we trust in the Lord and our actions says otherwise, that would be a “shallow trust” to me.

Total trust of a child to his parent means following what they told him without doubt for he knows the love they have for him, how much more God. Let us follow his divine light and make it known to the world by our actions(This is how we prove we have trust in him). Jesus is telling us today that its not enough to say “Lord, Lord” without working out our trust in Him by acting on his words, his will for us. Rain may fall, wind may blow, snow may come around but our feet is stuck in our redeemer’s shoe.

Trust in the Lord always, follow his will and act on his word.

God help us.
