For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe (1 Timothy 4:10).
A key word in the book of Psalms is “trust.”
The Psalmist often suffered, even faced
death, but he maintained his trust in God,
and prayed: “O LORD my God, in thee do I put
my trust: save me from all them that persecute
me, and deliver me” (Psalm 7:1).
Likewise, the wise man penned the virtue of
trust in the living God: “Every word of God
is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their
trust in him” (Proverbs 30:5).
Trust in God motivates us to labor for Him,
lightens our burdens, and strengthens us in
suffering for His cause. Believing in Him, we
know Him as our Saviour, in whom we trust.
