Daily devotional: Security is in trusting the Lord

Scripture
Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever.
Psalm 125:1 NLT

Observation
If we want security--a sure bet, or even if we are overwhelmed and in despair, we can stand and live in confidence if we put our trust in the Lord. Trials and persecution and suffering will come and go, but we will inherit eternal life and reign with God forever! Praise be to the Lord of Hosts!

Application
Keep my eyes fixed on Jesus. Trust Him, His ways, and His sovereignty. Remain desperately dependent on Him!

Prayer
Father God, I put my complete trust in You. May Your will be done in me and through me. Please give me strength to endure regardless of external circumstances which are always temporary, and help me keep my eyes fixed on You and run with endurance the race You have set before me. When You do amazing things and I have the opportunity to see Your hand, please keep my eyes opened wide in proper perspective so I can give You all the glory. I love You and praise You, Lord!
