Psalms 31:1-3 

Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit

1In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.

2Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

3For thou art my rock and my fortress; 

Prayer for one minute of Trust 

When we look at this scripture and what the commentary says about this scripture it focuses into what David was going through during that time. 

In each verse David says some strong and encouraging as he begins each verse 1 through 3 

In verse 1 - In thee, O Jehovah! do I put my trust- Some have opionated that this psalm was composed by David, after he had most unexpectedly escaped out of the wilderness of Maon

David trusted in God we all know that David had many shortcomings in his life and whenever he found himself in a bind or and an issue he knew that God was always there for him. He knew God would never fail him, which we can say he surely had great TRUST in the Lord. I would like to say if we now in this time would Just practice it in such a manner as David did. Know and believe that whenever we find ourselves in a situation that we have no control, and if we would just approach our God, as David did declare that our prayers would proceed from a firm persuasion as we know our safety depends on the power of God. 

Verse 2 - Bow down thine ear to me- These words express how much ardor David's soul was stimulated to pray. In praying that he may be delivered speedily, there David shows that his life was in danger, as if he had said, All will soon be over with my life, unless God make haste to help me. By this words, he knows God is his house of defense, his fortress, and his rock, he intimates, that, being unable to resist his enemies, his hope rests only on the protection of God.

Verse 3 For thou art my rock. It can also be described that thou art like a tower for my defense, for thy name's sake direct and guide me during my whole life. he encourages himself to be confident with hope of obtaining his requests. His prayers to remove his doubts, and to confirm his assurance expressed his need, he assured himself, in order to encourage and animate himself, that his prayer shall certainly have a happy answer. He had formerly said, Be thou my strong rock and fortress; But then he replaced his words with thou art my rock, and my fortress: 

From this we can say David also drew another encouragement for all of us for today- he then had God to guide and govenor his life, but we today through the the blood of Jesus Christ that we should have the Holy Spirit as our guide and governor during the whole course of our life. Just let the Holy Spirit lead and guide your life. 

And now I am going to talk about this time our time now May 19, 2020

I know many of our lives have drastically changed some have lost their jobs, went from full-time to part-time, lost a loved one through this pandemic or not. The bible talked about this time to happen and we all know what verse and where exact in the bible where the prophets prophesied this times, we were ready , are we ready, can you say, we are ready or we will be ready, for anything like this an in our present time. But as you all know we have hope and faith in Jesus Christ, which brings forth the word “Trust” . Trust in the Lord

Through our prayer, reading his word and fasting our strength, encouragement, faith, and hope in Jesus christ will never make us feel alone. I strongly encourage you to read your bible daily alone, with your family and as David did in this Psalms always look to our Lord as our ROCK, our FORTRESS, faith establishes a claim to have its anticipations that are made good.

God Bless you all miss you and that You are always in our prayers. 

Amen and God Bless
