I love the promise built into this Psalm.
“Those who know Your name trust in You,
for You have not forgotten those who seek You.” Psalm 9:10
God NEVER forgets us. We’re not only chosen and loved, but we are remembered. Doesn’t that just quicken your heart?
As much as I know and love God, sometimes I forget how much He knows and loves me. Rather than seeking surrender, my prayers offer explanation or even justification to a God who knows all things. Instead of leaning in and listening to His voice and promise, I pursue and trust the noise around me. Can you relate?
We trust what we know. Sometimes that trust is mishandled and we’re left wounded. I know, that hurts. But when our trust wavers, it’s not because God has.
Our fear, pain, and fickleness are not a reflection of God’s faithfulness.
God backs up His trustworthiness with His name. When we KNOW Him, we CAN trust Him, because He IS God. He is almighty, just, gracious and able—and He NEVER forgets us. We just need to remember the One who remembers us.
Let’s be a people who know WHO we know and believe in the power of His name, the strength of His word, and the value of always seeking to know God more. ♥
What about you? What do you need to trust God with today? How can the power of His name and the promise of His word strengthen You?
By His endless grace,
