Trust in the LORD

“In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?” Psalm 11:1 (KJV)

Of this verse C. H. Spurgeon in THE TREASURY OF DAVID, has written,

When Satan cannot overthrow us by presumption, how craftily will he seek to ruin us by distrust!  He will employ our dearest friends to argue us out of our confidence, and he will use such plausible logic, that unless we once for all assert our immovable trust in Jehovah, he will make us like the timid bird which flies to the mountain whenever danger presents itself.  How forcibly the ease is put!  The bow is bent, the arrow is fitted to the string; “Flee, flee, thou defenceless bird, thy safety lies in flight: begone, for thine enemies will send their shafts into thy heart;  haste, haste, for soon wilt thou be destroyed!  David seems to have felt the force of the advice, for it came home to his soul; but yet he would not yield, but would rather dare the danger than exhibit a distrust in the Lord his God.

Are you in a difficult position, situation or circumstance today?  God is with you.  Do not heed the “advice” of those who would tell you to “Flee” by doubting the LORD. Be as David.  Trust the LORD.

Begin at the cross of Jesus Christ.
