OUR MONTH OF TRUSTING #BLESSEDbyTRUSTING #WordoftheLordforMonthofMarch #DailyBenefits Ps 34:8-10
YOU CAN TRUST HIM,
OUR MONTH OF TRUSTING
Psalm 34:8-10 NKJV
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!  Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.  The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.
Climbing the ladder of this year has not been less challenging and unpredictable like any other year. When we enter every year, we always hope that the year will be better than the previous year.
And in fact, with what 2020 did for us, no one will not have desired to see something better in the year 2021.
But come to look at what the year 2021, is bringing to us:
- a new variant of COVID-19,
- confusion about the uncertainty of the vaccine produced,
- the fact that the vaccine may not be able to prevent spread,
- the conspiracy theories around the vaccine and
- the loss of trust in governments, the funding and international donor agencies.
- And many more individually and collectively
But, I have this word of the Lord impressed in my spirit for you as we navigate through whatever this year brings to us.
From this day, from this month and through this month as you climb the ladder of trust, you will be blessed.
Let me quickly tell you what it means to be blessed by trusting. In Ps 2:12 as explained by Amplified version.
Psalm 2:12 AMP
Kiss (pay respect to) the Son, so that He does not become angry, and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon be kindled and set aflame. How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] are all those who take refuge in Him!
Hear this, no one should look forward for a drastic turn around of the world situation that we are in now, at least not in the shortest distance time. See what part “a” of this scripture says,
Kiss (pay respect to) the Son, so that He does not become angry, and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon be kindled and set aflame.
The wrath of the son is kindled and is still setting at flame and that is why the word of the admonish you Kiss the son, pay respect to the son of God, make a deal with Him so that you will not share in the consequences of His anger.
And that is why the Lord is asking me to tell you today. You have to trust Him and you can trust him in the midst of the trouble.
For you, who don’t know the Lord, run from the pending dangers, find your way to the Son of God, agree to His terms and he can carry you through this season.
For everyone at the sound of my voice, as you choose to trust Him from this month, to take Him as your refuge, to let Him take the wheel of your life going forward, to allow Him to take leadership of your journey and to give Him the benefits of doubt that He can handle all your concerns, you shall be blessed (Ps 138:8). You will be fortunate; you will be prosperous; and you will be favoured.
Let me close with this verse of the Ps 34,
 The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.
As mighty and strong as the lions are, the bible says they still suffer hunger.
Hear this: mighty men, mighty nations and government who trust in their capacity and arms of flesh, they shall suffer lack, economic loss, confusion, and instability but to you that are listening to me, if you will choose to take away your hope and trust from men and governments, I say it again, you will not suffer hunger, you will not lack anything good and you will be blessed.
Psalm 20:7-8 KJV
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.  They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
You will rise, you will stand upright and you are blessed.
It is a month of three dose of blessing in one (fortunate, prosperous, and favoured)
Don’t forget, you can trust Him, and you should trust Him!
It is our Month of trusting.
