Psalm 32:10-11 (NKJV)
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the LORD, mercy shall surround him.
11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
Your trust in the Lord leads to you being surrounded with mercy. Take a moment to reflect on His mercy. Now take a moment to evaluate your trust in Him. The promise here is with your trust in Him you will be surrounded with mercy. Now this may take some adjusting, but the return is perfect. Being surrounded with the Lord’s mercy because He loves you is beyond what we deserve. So, as you now take another moment to reflect is He Lord of your life in all you do? Pray at this point for Him to reveal to you opportunities you may be missing. Is your prayer time devoted to seeking His will, guidance, and direction? Are you spending time in the Scriptures for answers, assurance, and peace? God knows you and desires to show you all He wants to bless you with in your journey through life. Your journey with Him now prepares you for the eternal journey He has for you when you have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior.
So, knowing Him and trusting Him with all your heart leads to a joyful journey. We miss out on so much peace, joy, and love when we do not include Him in all we do. Pray for Him to show His love and direction and feel the loving mercy He has for you.
