Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. NIV
This message is so simple. Trust in God. That’s where the blessing is.
Listen to how The Message paraphrases this verse: “Blessed are you who give yourselves over to God, turn your back’s on the world’s ‘sure thing,’ ignore what the world worships.” MSG
The world’s “sure thing,” isn’t sure at all … but God is.
This morning as I write in my quiet little living room, my house is filled to the brim with people that I love, all peacefully sleeping. I am so thankful for this precious time that we will have together as we celebrate the birth of our Lord.
The Lord is our trust. He is our past, our present and our future. He is a sure thing.
That’s what I’ll think about today.
