Psalm 63:5-6 “My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.”
Even in such a condition, David retained his joy and confidence. How? By keeping his focus on God. Even though David found himself in terrible circumstances, he was able to say with certainty: “My soul shall be satisfied…and my mouth shall praise thee.”
“Unto thee will I cry, O Lord my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.” Psalm 28:1
If you want to know what your heart is trusting in, ask yourself this question: “What is it that, if I lost it, would cause my world to fall apart?”
Psalm 20:7 “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”
Everyone is trusting in something. No one’s heart is passive. We are all actively trusting in something to save us. Our problem is that, usually, what we trust in isn’t trustworthy. It eventually betrays us and leaves us feeling empty.
