Psalms 37:3-6 -- On Learning to Trust

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."
Psalms 37:3-6

These are some pretty amazing promises... being fed, getting the desires of our hearts, even, it seems, getting our way. :)  Very few things stand in the way of having it all... mostly trust.  I wonder sometimes why it is so hard to trust God.  Part of it could be our society.  It is full of imperfect people, and our experiences often erode our faith and trust in humanity.  Also, we often don't trust ourselves, so it can be pretty hard to trust anyone when we don't know how to have that kind of faith in anyone at all.  Today, though, let's try.  God is worthy of our trust, as no human, including ourselves, can be.  He does, and always will, keep his promises.  We are his children.  He will never abandon or forsake us.  He always, always, wants to be in touch with us.  Let's take his hand today, and allow him to lead us to the answers we seek.  Let's allow him to feed us with his spirit, and bless us as only he can.  Let's learn of him, love him, commit to him, and delight in the fact that the God of the Universe wants to hang out with us.  That he loves us, and wants to help us every moment.  Let's let go of our doubts and fears and anxieties, and realize that we really can trust someone with everything. As we learn to trust him, God will be able to help us more and more, and someday, because we offered him our trust, these verses will be fulfilled in our individual lives.
