The Bible speaks to us a lot of times about trust, urges us to trust in God, and there is a verse that is well known to all of us that says: “Those who trust in God are like Mount Zion that stays forever.” Who can we trust more than God Himself?
The Bible says:
1 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
God makes salvation
its walls and ramparts.
2 Open the gates
that the righteous nation may enter,
the nation that keeps faith.
3 You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
God promised complete peace for those who trust in Him. It is true that we go through many situations on a daily basis, so it does not seem that we really have that peace that we long for. However, the apostle Paul tells us:
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God gives us a peace that surpasses all understanding, this means that in the midst of all the situations that life presents to us, there is a peace, that we can not even define or express, because that peace transcends our finite knowledge. That peace that God gives us also produces in us a much higher level of trust, which makes us believe beyond the visible and the human.
The people of Israel did need this trust in God, in the midst of so much tempest for which they had been passing. In the same way, we also need that full confidence to be able to persevere in the Lord.
God invites us to trust in Him always, and that hope will never make us fall into shame, it is not like when we wait in someone, or when we wait for the charity that someone had promised us and in the end we do not see it, no! God is not like that, yes he has promised something, He fulfills it because He fulfills it. Let’s trust in God!
