Whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.
We never know the meaning of trust until we learn the nature of trial. It is in trial that we have to put into practice the theory of believing in God. Trust is to become the habit of the soul. But often, I am perplexed about faith, because, instead of being occupied with the Object of faith, I am thinking about the act of believing. But faith never comes in this way. It has no existence apart from Him who is the object of it. "Whoever trusts in the Lord." Let our thoughts be occupied with God's revealed character, with what He is to us and what He has done for us, and we shall, without trying to believe, begin to put our trust in Him. It is with who God is that my mind must be occupied; my mind then finds it's resting place in God, and I begin to know a peace that could never be found in this world. I see then how true are the words, "Happy is he."
Trial therefore is the testing ground or school for trust. It is there that I learn the lesson of implicitly confiding in God, and of waiting patiently on Him.
