An anchor of trust
In you, O Lord, I have put my trust; let me never be confused; deliver me in your righteousness.
Psalm 31: 1
As today’s verse indicates, David had great confidence in God in the midst of his affliction. He also said “For you are my rock and my castle; by your name you will guide me and guide me. Take me out of the net that they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge” (Ps. 31: 3-4). His confidence lay in the holy character of God. A proper knowledge of God is essential for spiritual stability. And the only way to know God is through what He wanted to reveal to us about himself in the Scriptures.
