God’s people have an important question facing them in these last days. Do you believe God is able to see you through while the foundations of the world are shaking? Satan is roaring like a maddened lion, and everywhere there is confusion, violence, and uncertainty.
Those who trust in the Lord, fixed and established in their confidence in him, will stand still and see God’s salvation — with hearts and minds totally at peace. They will enjoy rest, untouched by violence and fear, and sleep unafraid of conditions around them, rejoicing in hope!
The Lord asked two blind men who begged him for mercy and healing, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” (Matthew 9:28). When they answered in the affirmative, their eyes were opened (see verse 29).
And today the Lord asks us, “Do you believe I am able to direct and guide you? Do you believe I am still at work on your behalf? Or do you harbor secret thoughts that I have forsaken you and let you down?”
Several verses of scripture should bring great comfort and assurance to our hearts:
- “Whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe” (Proverbs 29:25).
- “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever” (Psalm 125:1).
- “Trust in Him at all times, you people . . . God is a refuge for us” (Psalm 62:8).
God’s Word is full of glorious promises for all who trust in him! We keep wanting to do things, to give up things, to sacrifice, to work and suffer. And all the while what he desires most is our complete trust. His Word is clear. God is pleased with nothing short of our faith: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).
