Trust in Him

Psalm 31:1-7 says, "In You, O LORD, I put my trust;Let me never be ashamed;Deliver me in Your righteousness. Bow down Your ear to me,Deliver me speedily;Be my rock of refuge,A fortress of defense to save me. For You are my rock and my fortress;Therefore, for Your name's sake,Lead me and guide me  Pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me,For You are my strength.  Into Your hand I commit my spirit;You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth. I have hated those who regard useless idols;But I trust in the LORD. I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy,For You have considered my trouble;You have known my soul in adversities."
This passage in the Psalms was written by David. David trusted in God and followed Him, but David also had times in his life when he wondered why it seemed that God wasn't delivering him fast enough. Many times David asked God how long he would allow the wicked to reign. Yet in the end God delivered and provided for David.
Regardless of what struggles and wickedness we face in this life, we must put our hope and trust in God. He is the one who will deliver us. He is the one who guides us. He is our strength. Although people of this world may cause us troubles, when God is our strength they cannot defeat us!
