In Psalm 52, verses 8 and 9, David writes, “But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God. I will always trust in God’s unfailing love. I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done. I will trust in your good name in the presence of your faithful people.”
These verses really lifted me up tonight as I read them. I, too, feel like I am thriving because of God’s love, and this is a great feeling to have. I have made drastic changes in my life over the last few months, because of God’s urging me to do his will and live a more honorable life.
At first I resisted the changes mightily, thinking that there was no way I was going to be able to do what he was pressing on me to do. I couldn’t imagine how I would be able to go through with the changes he wanted me to make, and I didn’t believe I was capable of it.
But God made it clear that he was not going to take ‘no’ for an answer, and he led me into the right circumstances and situations to be able to fulfill his will for me. I have been surprised to find out that I was capable all along of doing what he wanted me to do, I just didn’t know it.
I has underscored for me that God knows what I am capable of, far better than I do. He wants me to live a life that is pleasing in his sight, and for me to do so he really had to press hard on my heart to move me into a place where I was willing to overhaul some things.
But in the end he was proven right in so many ways, and he has given me a better life, which of course he knew would happen. I am so grateful to him for believing in me and forcing me forward even though I was terrified about the changes I was being asked to make. I understand what David means when he says in verse 4, “I will always trust in God’s unfailing love.” I hope this experiences will bolster my faith in the future every time I reflect back on it.
