August 29

“Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.” Proverbs 16:20 (NIV)

There is a great benefit that comes to those who put their trust in the Lord. We read that to rely on the Lord brings a blessing. It is well for us to remember that the word translated “blessed” can also be translated “happy.” We can also read the verse as follows: “Happy is he or she who trusts in the Lord.” That is what trusting in the Lord produces in our lives. It produces happiness and satisfaction. As we trust in Him for all our needs, the burdens we have carried and the uncertainties of life are taken care of. We then have the assurance that our loving Almighty God will care for us. Is not that a source of happiness?
