In English grammar, our text verse begins with an understood subject. The subject is you. It is also a declarative statement and in the imperative mood. It reads simplified, “You trust in the Lord with all your heart, and don’t be basing your lifestyle on your own reasonings, but in everything you do, rely or lean on Him, and He will guide you in every way, especially through green pastures and into houses of plenty.” Psalm 8:4 reminds us that no matter how wise men may be, our precious God is wiser and greater. Let’s study Solomon’s advice on how to have a life filled with peace and joy.
He gives to you personally the opportunity to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.
I must confess readily how our precious Lord protects and provides for us, but I know it is real. The angels protect us! (Psalm 34:7) Is this real? Of course, it is real. The Word of God says it, that settles it. Psalm 37 has a multiple list of what we receive when we trust in God. Not only does He protect us, He provides for us in every way. Psalm 37:25 reads, “I have been young and I have been old (am) and yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or the seed begging bread.” Jesus states it this way, “See ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”
What things? Our basic needs. Food, clothing, shelter are God’s promised provisions if you place Him as your No. 1 priority. But, as the commercials say, “Wait! There is more!” He for reaching love to us spans not only this Earth, but eternity as well.
Psalm 37:28 reads, “The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever.” Forever has been described as if a sparrow bended over and took a drop of water out of the Atlantic Ocean, walked across the entire United States and placed it in the Pacific Ocean, and continued this until the ocean could hold no more, then rendered his carrying until all was back to normal, then eternity and forever will have just begun. May we be sure that righteousness only comes from Christ (II Corinthians 5:21). When we receive Him as Savior and He births us from above, our souls are sealed with His holiness. The second part of our text says to, “In all our ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct our paths.” To have Him as a guide is a reward to be cherished.
I am such a stumble-bum on my own, as such as we all are. We are often the blind leading the blind. But praise God, one day soon, and very soon, we will know what it is like to be with Jesus, the chief shepherd who has loved us and gave Himself for us. Praise God! Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
