Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
Volume 5 Number 24 “Oh How I Trust My Lord’s Help!”
June 15, 2022
I hope that you have enjoyed a couple of weeks of looking back into some earlier “Karen’s Notes.” As I search through the little notes she wrote to herself, I catch myself thinking, “No, this one is too personal.” I then move on and find something where I say to myself, “Yep! I know her well enough to know that she wouldn’t mind me sharing this.” Such is the case today.
Karen was reading Psalm 28. From this reading apparently she invested a little quiet time thinking it through. I can tell you that as a mother with a house full of children and as a busy pastor’s wife, I don’t know how she found any quiet time. But in one of those moments she really focused on Psalm 28:7. Let me share it with you, and then I’ll share several notes that she wrote to herself.
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song will I praise Him.”
Karen wrote: My heart trusted. I am helped. Yes, I see that God is my helper. This verse has trusted before helped. I must trust the Lord.
Trust: Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart”
Help: Proverbs 3:6 “He will direct thy paths”
Trust: Psalm 37:5a, “Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him”
Help: Psalm 37b, “He shall bring it to pass”
Michael’s observation: This is just about half of her notes. I’ll share the rest of the portion next week. I think of the situations through which many of you are traveling. Here is something that you and I share alike. If we know Christ as our own Savior, our Heavenly Father wants to help us. He wants us to trust Him. What a precious and pointed reminder for me today. Trust and watch for how He helps. I want to be able to say with King David, “I trusted in Him and am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song will I praise Him.”
