They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.  Psalms 125:1

I begin by asking a question, who or what are you placing your trust in?  That is a question that we must ponder very seriously.  I know we are bombarded with the news of an unstable world economy.  Politicians and economists are trying to find the solution to this volatile economic situation that is at the verge of a disastrous collapse.  Both political parties always blame each other for the problems we are facing socially and economically.  Both sides continue thinking they hold the key to bring a solution to this problem; when in fact they are the ones who have gotten us into this mess. Well, it may shock you, but I don’t believe that either side can restore the situation.  And the reason why I choose not to trust either party is because even if everything collapses, I know that God is still on the throne, and that He is the only One that can help us in these troubled times.

The Psalmist charges both you and I, “Do not put your trust in princes, nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.”  “His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; in that very day his plans perish.”  “Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God.”   (Psalms 146:3-5)

I believe the stage is set for the fulfillment of end time events that are on the horizon.   I believe God is calling for each of us to grow closer to Him by trusting Him and diligently seeking Him in these tumultuous times.  We must become more heavenly minded, and think on the things that will please the Lord.  We have to understand that it is through our greatest trials that we experience our greatest growth.  The enemy desires to cause us to focus on everything but the Lord; he wants us to take our minds off of the One who is able to bring us through tough times and to seek our own solutions; do not be deceived by the enemy.

God’s Word promises that those who “Trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion which cannot be removed…” that means, that one has stability and continued existence.  The word “removed” means “shaken.”  Therefore the phrase “cannot be removed” means that the individual that trusts in the LORD cannot be shaken or removed from the place of God’s protection and care.

We have a relationship with the Creator of the universe through our Lord Jesus Christ.  We have been given the promise of His presence and protection.  It is imperative that we never lose sight that it is Him and Him alone, who is the only one that can bring us through not only these challenging times we live in now, but the perplexing times to come.  “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen.”  Ephesians 3:20-21.
