( I woke up with this on my mind)
‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
I’m so glad I learned to trust Him,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend
And I know that He is with me,
Will be with me to the end.
Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood
And in simple faith to plunge me
‘Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.
Many of us wake up each day and trust that we will have breath in our bodies. The truth is none of us have been promised a new day. We just assume it will come. I recently saw a Facebook post asking folks how far ahead they plan. I was amazed that some said a year, while others said only a few months. But honestly none of us are promised to be here tomorrow. We all lay our trust in God that he will give us more days to plan. But we don’t know if that will happen. The song says Jesus how I trust him, how I prove him, God gives us proof daily that we can trust his word. He has never disappointed nor has he forsaken us. If you wake up and read this devotional be grateful for this day. It wasn’t promised. Lesson learned.
Our reminder text is-
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
