“ Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.”~Psalm 37:3
This is a promise from God, but it is also conditional. God calls us to have confidence in Him and live righteously. The land referred to here is the promised land for the Jews. We as Christians don’t have any land today. However, what we see here is that if we simply trust God, we will walk into His promises. And we will be fed. If we just do what Christ has called us to do, then He will give us what we need. A renewed mind, inner peace, victory over the past, real friends, everlasting Love, and His strength to be successful in life.
Simply stated a lack of trust in God results in not receiving all He has for you. Not trusting God leads to a life that may be long and successful according to people’s standards, but nowhere near what it could have been. When we learn to trust God we will also do right things no matter how we feel; knowing that He will sustain us. This verse is in sync Proverbs 3:5-6. If we just trust the Lord (with all of our being), then He will take care of EVERYTHING else. Do you want to experience all that God has for you? Then trust Him.
