Preserve my life, for I am holy; You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You!
Trust is a logical consequence of faith. We know that faith is an indispensable requirement for salvation, to be part of God’s promises and to be healed. The tangible evidence of our faith is to trust that God is able to do all those things in our lives. Who trusts rests on who has trusted knowing He not let you down. We know that God is faithful to His Word and we must walk confidently because He will never leave us in shame.
The best biblical example of someone who was saved by trusting God is David. David’s trust in the God of Israel was always very noticeable. When he faced Goliath, David showed great trust in God because he was sure that was not fighting against the giant in his own strength but with the Almighty. Humanly speaking, there was not much chance that a boy armed with a few stones would defeat a well-armed giant with very war experience.
David is the author of many of the psalms and sings God’s praises them and says his confidence in the Almighty. Psalm 18:2 says: The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Here David says that God is his rock, his fortress, his deliverer, his strength, his shield, his stronghold and the horn of his salvation. For all these things, David reiterates his trust in God.
Being a man anointed by God to be king of Israel, David had many enemies as Saul, the Philistines, and even his own son Absalom, who rebelled against him. However, despite suffering years of persecution and harassment, David never stopped trusting God to deliver him from all his enemies. The faithfulness of God to save those who trust in Him is fully demonstrated in the life of the second king of Israel.
We read in 2 Samuel 22:1-3: Then David spoke to the Lord the words of this song, on the day when the Lord had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. And he said; “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; the God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; my Savior, You save me from violence.” David always acknowledged that his salvation came from God.
Stories like David are constant in all who trust in God. Every day children of God are delivered from death and many dangers to fully trust the God whom they serve. Heavenly Father will never fail us and will always go to the aid of those who have placed their trust in Him. Never be lost to leave our destiny in His hands.
But salvation that God gives us is not limited to the dangers that we face in this world. Most salvation is by giving us eternal life, which is not earned or inherited but we receive by trusting in Him. His plan of salvation is free, the only thing required of you is to trust Him and deliver your heart, in the same way that He gave His Son for you. Do it now! God bless you.
