As part of my morning devotions, I’ve started a new study of my own. I bought a simple notebook and as I am going through the Psalms one chapter at a time, I am writing down descriptive words or phrases telling me just what God is like or what He does. When some verse is especially meaningful, I will also write it out. Though I’ve only reached the 22nd Psalm, I have found a wealth of blessings. One word in particular has “popped” out and that is the word “trust.” In my marginal notes it means: the same as faith, believe; signifies to take refuge, to lean on, to “roll on.” Isn’t that one interesting?– “to roll on.” One friend of mine, reminded me of the song “Rolled away, rolled away, rolled away, every burden of my heart rolled away.” Isn’t that exactly what God does? When we roll on God (roll or cast our burden on Him) He rolls those burdens away.
And as I look at my descriptive words: (those found in chapter 18) God is: my rock, fortress, deliverer, my strength, shield, high tower; how can I not “trust” Him, call on Him for every situation in my life because of who He is and all that He is to me.
“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield … my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD who is worthy to be praised.” Psalm 18:2,3
What do you need to “roll” on the Lord today?
