Minute Meditations of Hope and Encouragement #126

Psalm 46:10 “be still and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth. The Lord is here with us…” If we trust, we may be still. Trust is tranquillity amidst the tumult. Trust in Jesus brings infinity to my side. Submission is repose. It is not weakness but strength. When we cease to kick against the thorns they cease to prick and wound us. Trust opens the heart, like the window of the ark tossing on the black and fatal flood, for the entrance of the peaceful dove with the olive branch in its mouth. Trust brings Christ to my side in his tenderness and greatness and sweetness. If I trust, all is right that seems most wrong. If I trust, conscience is quiet. If I trust, inward unrest is changed into tranquillity and mad passions are cast out from him that sits in right mind at the feet of Jesus. If I trust, the gloom of the world is but a shadow. Shadows are cast by light and that is where we must face. This will put the shadows behind us.
