Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
Volume 5 Number 25 “Oh How I Trust My Lord’s Help! – Part 2”
June 22, 2022
Karen didn’t journal every day. However, she wrote many, many brief statements as she studied God’s Word for her own personal spiritual life. She wrote more detailed notes when she was invited to be the speaker at a ladies’ conference. Last week and today I am sharing the brief things she wrote as she read through Psalm 28 and lingered at 28:7. She was impressed, challenged and apparently blessed by the rich teaching of His people trusting in the Lord, His helping His people, and His people rejoicing and praising Him.
Let me share Psalm 28:7. Think about the richness and blessing of what King David shares with us.
“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.
(Michael’s interruption: Last week I shared about trusting and the Lord’s helping as found in Proverbs 3:5-6 and Psalm 37:5. Let me share the additional two references Karen wrote out to herself concerning trusting and the Lord’s help.)
Back to Karen’s writing: God as my helper. I must trust Him.
Trust: Isaiah 26:3b, “He trusted in Thee”
Help: Isaiah 26:3a, “Thou wilt keep Him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee”
Trust: Isaiah 26:4a, “Trust ye in the LORD for ever:
Help: Isaiah 26:4b, “For in the Lord JEHOVEAH is everlasting strength”
Michael’s observation: I’ve looked through her conference notebook, and while Karen spoke about trusting the Lord, I honestly do not see where any of these brief notes were expanded into any of her speaking engagements. These were things with which she challenged herself. I can honestly say that whatever your situation today, honestly, whatever your situation, as you TRUST the Lord, it will be amazing to see how He HELPS His people. How will this impact you today?
