Strengthen Your Faith (3)

‘Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.’ Psalm 56:3 NKJV

Faith is like a muscle; trouble may strain it, but in the end it grows stronger. David understood this truth. He was continually hounded by his enemies. Even as he was being anointed to sit on the throne of Israel, Saul was still occupying it. But instead of losing faith in God’s promise, David declared: ‘The Lord has chosen everyone who is faithful to be His very own, and He answers my prayers.’ (Psalm 4:3 CEV) When the Philistines captured him, he prayed, ‘There are many who fight against me, O Most High. Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.’ (Psalm 56:2–3 NKJV) When he ended up in a cave fleeing from Saul’s jealous rage, he said, ‘I will hide beneath the shadow of Your wings until this storm is past.’ (Psalm 57:1 TLB)

During the third century when Felix of Nola was running from his enemies, he is said to have taken refuge in a cave. A spider began to weave a web across the small opening, sealing it off and making it look like nobody had been inside for months. Consequently, his pursuers passed by. Stepping out into the sunshine, Felix declared, ‘Where God is, a spider’s web is a wall. And where God is not, a wall is a spider’s web.’ Jesus said you’d have problems in life; people will disappoint you, and you’ll even disappoint yourself. Sometimes you’ll end up in a cave because of something you did, or because of circumstances over which you have no control. But with God on your side, you can say, ‘Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.’
