Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight”

John 15:10, “If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love”

Today’s devotional is a hymn, which is one of my favorites. It speaks about trusting, obeying and walking with our Lord, Jesus Christ. It should be every believer’s desire for the Lord to fill us with wonder and gratitude for His marvelous salvation and to give Him the praise He deserves. Thus, as His children, we must be faithful in our love, trust and obedience to Him, our Savior and Redeemer, for without Him we are nothing! So, it would be my sincere desire that this old hymn will be a blessing to your heart, not only today, but in the many days and months, which lie ahead.

When we walk with the Lord In the light of His word,
What a glory He sheds on our way! While we do His good will,
He abides with us still and with all who will trust and obey.

Refrain

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away; not a doubt nor a fear,
Not a sigh nor a tear can abide while we trust and obey.

Refrain

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay; for the favor He shows
And the joy He bestows are for them who will trust and obey.

Refrain

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way; what He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go never fear, only trust and obey.

Refrain

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Further thoughts:

She was the best-known atheist in the United States, perhaps in the entire world. Madalyn Murray O’Hair was profane and very aggressive, devoting herself to attacking all religion, and especially Christianity. Then, in 1995 at age 76, she mysteriously disappeared. Was she the victim of foul play or had she gone into hiding? Before evidence eventually pointed to a former associate as the murderer, the Internal Revenue Service seized her personal belongings to pay delinquent taxes and personal debts.

Included in the IRS auction was a penny that had the words “In God We Trust” scratched out. That 1-cent piece sold for $10. Also included was a Bible, which sold for $2,000. As mere paper and ink, that Bible was worth at the most only a few dollars. But as the Word of God, which communicates the truth of saving grace, that Book was priceless, as is any edition of God’s Eternal Word.

Do we, unlike those who deny God’s existence, put our trust and obedience in Him, and His Word? Do we agree with the psalmist who wrote, “The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver”? (Psalm 119:72). If we do, let’s study the Scripture, embrace its teachings, live out its truths, and to trust and obey, for there’s no other way; to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

The blessings of the Lord are known
By all who will obey;
His wisdom, truth, and love are shown
To all who walk His way? – DJD
