A Devotion for June 9th

THEY that put their trust in the LORD shall be even as the mount Sion, which may not be removed, but standeth fast for ever. ~ Psalm 125:1

As Christians, we are called to place all of our trust in the Lord. Trusting can be a hard challenge, and it is easy to become puffed up with pride that distracts us from trust.  Pride makes us forget our place and stumble and fall into one trap or another.

It is when we learn to trust the Lord entirely that we will find that we are not moved or shaken in our faith, and the Holy Spirit is given to train us. The Holy Spirit guides and directs our hearts and minds to the place where we can learn this trust so that we can grow.

This is not done to our glory, but so that we can experience the untainted glory of God, and in standing firm in Him we glorify him.
