I Will Trust In Him



 

 

“Bind up the testimony and seal up the law among the disciples.

 I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face
 
from the house of Jacob.

 I will put my trust in him.”

Isaiah 8: 16-17 (NIV)

 

“Bind up the testimony. . . “ My concordance defines testimony as a witness borne on behalf of something.
 

“. . . seal up the law among the disciples.” That same concordance tells me the law is an authoritative rule of conduct.

“I will wait for the LORD “ The prophet Isaiah states what we all should do especially when we face circumstances that can cause problems or change our lives. Sometimes we don’t wait and find things have become big messes.

 

When events happen that have caused problems, we need to rely upon God and His grace to work out the kinks of the circumstances. A friend of mine and her family have been through a time of intense emotion. Two hospital stays with a rehab stay sandwiched in between, coupled with miscommunication caused this family a lot of pain and stress. But several of us close to that family were praying for them. When my friend called me after a day and a half in the hospital this last time, she told me she could feel those prayers. By praying, we were trusting God in her behalf.

  2. Hi Quiet Spirit,

    When I was going through a tough time, the prayers of others were a great support.

  3. We should never understimate the power of prayer for one another. God works through our obedience to His Word as we lift up one another...He hears our pleas, even the silent cries of our hearts as we intercede on behalf of the saints. So thankful for this privilege of prayer...and for all those who have diligently prayed for me and my family throughout the years. Don't know where we would be today without those faithful praying friends.

    1. Pamela; Thanks for visiting. Sometimes all we can do is pray. I had to learn this. The issues involved in a situation may be so tender that,as a human, I might make things worse. We have a God who loves us and guides us through the 'potholes' of our lives.

  4. Thank you for this wonderful reminder! A friend of mine is staying with her daughter in the hospital and it's been a long stay starting with a major surgery, and now a long journey of rehab to a second surgery, and then recovery - it's a four month sojourn, and we pray for them every day.
