TRUST IN THE LORD: FOR HE IS TRUSTWORTHY
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. (Psalm 9:10)
Happy New Year 2012!!! As we enter year 2012, we have a lot of plans and resolutions for the better life. When we look back to the past years, we don’t want to repeat the mistakes. Some failures happened because we didn’t have a strong starting point. That’s why we must have a strong (not only good) starting point. If you want to be success in your life this year, your starting point must be TRUST IN THE LORD. Trust in the Lord, for he is trustworthy. King David said in 2 Samuel 7:28, “Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is
trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant .” King David had seen that God always fulfill his promise before he became a king. And after that, he always sees how trustworthy God is! That’s why King David live in such a way that he could called as a man after God’s own heart. Whatever your plans, resolutions, targets, and dreams for this new-year, seek God and submit all these things to him. He has never forsaken those who seek him. Trust in the Lord and do not lean on your own understanding for God knows the plans he has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Proverbs 3:16, Jeremiah 29:11). Will you put your trust in the Lord? Surabaya, December 17, 2011 Novi Kurniadi
