Verse of the Day

Isaiah 26:4
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
This verse contains the simple imperative: “Trust.” Though simple in word, trust is difficult to maintain in life. Most people have had negative life experiences that have taught them that trust is a commodity not to trade in easily, for anyone and everyone we fully trust will eventually fail. Many times failure is unintentional, but failure is inevitable. Humans, it seems, were not built to fully carry that kind of weight for each other.

But the Lord is the Rock. Unmovable. Unshakable. Unchangeable. His character stands more firmly than stone. Though any human will eventually crack under the pressure of the weight of carrying another’s trust, the Lord is more than capable of carrying the trust of all who have faith in him. We know this is true because he has proven himself to be trustworthy time and time again—most of all through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus validates all of the trust that believers place in God; his saving work on our behalf proves that God, the Eternal Rock, can bear that weight.
