A Devotional Thought from Psalm 9:6–11
6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end:
And thou hast destroyed cities;
Their memorial is perished with them.
7 But the LORD shall endure for ever:
He hath prepared his throne for judgment.
8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness,
He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble.
10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:
For thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion:
Declare among the people his doings.
The old 1950’s song said “to know, know, know him is to love, love, love him… and I do.”
I thought of those words when I read verse 10. The psalmist wrote “and they that know thy name will put their trust in thee…”. The fact is that if you know my Lord, if you truly have a relationship with him, then you will put your trust in him. If you know how strong he is and of what he is capable then you won’t worry so much. If you know how trustworthy he is then you would never doubt a single thing he has promised. If you know how loving he is then you would never imagine him to be in Heaven untouched by our infirmities.
