Passage: Psalm 37:39-40 & Acts 16:14

Trust in Christ

…the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him

(PSALM 37:39-40)

Beloved, this is the very gospel of our salvation—“the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD” (PSALM 37:39). Now while those that oppose the gospel of Christ would assert that “salvation is up to you” or “salvation is left up to the so called ‘free will’ of man”—God’s word declares “Salvation belongeth unto the LORD” (PSALM 3:8), indeed “Salvation is of the LORD” (JONAH 2:9). You see, God decides to whomsoever He will give it. Salvation does not belong to man’s worth, or man’s will, or man’s whim; rather, God “saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion” and the apostle concludes salvation “is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy” (ROMANS 9:15-16). My sinner friend, it is God that shows mercy: Salvation is of Him, He purposed it, He purchased it, He provided it, and He gives it to His beloved people undeservedly. Indeed “He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.” May the LORD grant reader and writer alike to ever do that very thing “trust in Him” from the heart that He opens [ACTS 16:14]. AMEN!
