The Tones of Trust

As we live our lives we discover what we can trust and what we can’t.

One thing I’ve noticed is that both of those seem to go together with music. Just listen to country and western music and you’ll learn all about the things you can’t trust.

But a lot of beautiful music has also been written about the things (and the people) we can put our faith in.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but over the centuries, there’s something that has inspired a lot of music. Something that has inspired even more music than romance, or heartbreak, or bars, or cars.

And that’s because there’s no one you can trust like this…

“Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love” (Psalm 33:3-5, NIV).

Our Bible reading for Thursday, March 12, is Leviticus 25:1 – 26:13, Mark 16:1-20 and Psalm 33:1-11.

Lord, thank you for your faithful and unfailing love. Thank you for loving me enough to give me your word. I know I can trust you. Forgive me for the times when I doubt. Help me by your Holy Spirit’s power to trust you with all my heart.

One thought on “The Tones of Trust”

  1. Our Bible reading for Thursday, March 12, is Leviticus 25:1 – 26:13, Mark 16:1-20 and Psalm 33:1-11.

    He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (‭Mark‬ ‭16‬:‭15-16‬ NIV)

    Heavenly Father, thank you for being the God of all creation. You have made every wonder on the earth, you have made all things. Today we ask for your blessing in helping spread the word of the gospel. The true story about mans salvation in Jesus Christ. We ask that you give us each our own way to share this good news. Please continue to bless my church family that does great things in your name. Please continue to bless my friends that write and sing wonderful praises in your name. Sharing their testimony, letting others know you in a way that brings peace and strength to our lives.

    Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. (‭Psalm‬ ‭33‬:‭3-5‬ NIV)

    But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. (‭Psalm‬ ‭33‬:‭11‬ NIV)
