Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 91:14-16 NLT

[14] The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.

[15] When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.

[16] I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

Reflection . . .

Verse 14 gives us two things the Lord desires of us.

He desires that we Love Him and Trust Him.

These two things are what everyone desires, but few are willing to give easily. Love and Trust are foundational to a relationship and without one or the other the relationship is strained in some way. The more we love and trust the Lord, the more we are blessed by Him in the ways listed in the following verses: He will answer our call; He will rescue and honour us; He will reward us with a long life and be saved. These blessings can only be experienced in a relationship with the Lord that is based in Love and Trust.

The video below talks about waiting but is very appropriate for us as learn to Love and Trust God.
