The other night I was listening to the TV before falling asleep. The Duracell commercial was playing as I closed my eyes so I wasn’t paying much attention, until the tag line. “Trust is power.” It gripped me in that moment; I have not been able to let it go.
I’ve been in a season for a bit now where the highs and lows have been extreme. There has been a lot of tears, discouragement and disappointment, yet also laughter, joy and a realization that I’m not all alone. I would be lying if I said I have enjoyed every moment. A lot of it has sucked and sucked to the point where I’ve wanted to drive very far away and never come back. I have felt forgotten at times, overwhelmed, unappreciated, used, etc. But…trust is power.
You see, people will fail, disappoint, overwhelm, use, abuse, and ignore me. But God never fails. He always knows right where I am and what I need, and I find then that I’m not alone.
Trust is power. The enemy has been wreaking havoc lately and, frankly, I have let him. I lost sight of who I trusted in the moment of human weakness, but that one tag line from a battery commercial was the thing I most needed to refocus and recenter.
Trust truly is power. We are children of God! We are more powerful because of our trust in Him for He never fails, never forsakes and never leaves us on our own. He has our back and He knows what our future holds. The devil knows this, so he will do his best to cause us to question our trust in God and waver in our walk.
Not today, Satan. Not today.
Trust is power.
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You (Psalm 9:10 NKJV)
But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” (Psalm 31:14)
