The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

Devotional: August 1st

"We trust in the living God." 1 Timothy 4:10

THE living God is opposed to a dying world, to our dying frames, and to our dying friends; these must not be trusted, or we shall be wretched. Our God may, ought to be trusted, for He is the only suitable object of a Christian’s trust; He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think. He is immutable. He never disappointed a sinner’s hope, if founded on His word; or refused a believer’s petition, for deliverance or relief. If we trust in the living God, it will preserve us from perpetual disappointment; from bitter reflections on self and others; from many dangers; and from the threatened cures. If we trust in the living God we are blessed; we shall be fruitful; we shall be delivered from slavish fears; we shall enjoy perfect peace; we shall be provided for; we shall find a refuge in every storm; have an answer for all who reproach us; experience firmness and stability; and enjoy solid happiness. Let us ascertain, Are we trusting in the living God? Let us seek grace, daily to live in simple, child-like dependence upon Him. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord.

In Thee, O Lord, I put my trust,

Mighty and merciful and just

Who hides my life above;

Thou canst, Thou wilt my Helper be;

My confidence is all in Thee,

My faithful God of love.
