Psalm 28




A Bible Devotion from Psalm 28

My Heart Trusted Him and I am Helped


Google


Blessed be the Lord, because He has heard the voice of my supplications! The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him. 
Psalm 28:6-7, NKJV



This is a Psalm about trust. Who do you trust? It's a simple question that most people get wrong! Who are the people in your life that you trust the most: people you work with, friends, family?

Have you ever sat with a group of friends or coworkers and observed what happens when one person gets up and leaves? Everyone laughed and chatted with that person until they left; then the topic changed. Here is where we really learn what they thought of that person as one after another tears at them with their words.

The Bible recognizes two classes of people, the saved and the unsaved or the wicked and the righteous. What is in the heart of the wicked? Do not take me away with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbors, but evil is in their hearts. (Verse 3) The truth is in the heart, and the non-Christian does not have a pure heart.

Contrast this with the heart of the Christian who trusts only in the Lord in verse 7: The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped.

Sadly, even we Christians often fall into the camp of those who backbite and gossip, but our heart can always trust in the Lord. Christians are sinners too, but they have a true Advocate. They can fall on their face before the Lord and cry out to Him to help them act more like a Christian. Then you, too, can say with David, My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped.

Pray today that God would keep you from the sin of gossip and backbiting. Pray to Him and be helped.
