Trust in Yah and steadfast love will surround you.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. It is difficult to trust someone you don’t know. You have no relationship with them, no track record of their loyalty. Trusting someone isn’t something you do in faith; it requires a lasting friendship that has been tried and tested. You have past instances of a person’s trustworthiness to rely on. And you will be able to draw on varied experiences that show a broad range of reliability on the part of your friend.
When your relationship has been truly cemented, and that friend has earned your trust over a long period of time, being responsible with it, they will extend a rare love to you for trusting them; a love borne out of deep appreciation for your trust. This is certainly true when the friend you’ve established a long-lasting relationship with, and who you trust wholeheartedly, is Yah. Trusting Yah comes with the reward of a steadfast love that will fill your life and power your faith. A friendship with Yah, however, wherein that trust is exercised, can only be established with the righteous—those who go about doing his will. Yah has no fellowship with the wicked and rebellious. This truth is summed up in two verses of Scripture:
10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in Yah. 11 Be glad in Yah, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
—Psalm 32:10 – 11
