I Will Trust

There is a natural law of sin and sickness. If we just sink into the trend of circumstances we shall go down and sink under the power of the tempter. But there is another law of spiritual life and physical life in Christ Jesus to which we can rise and through which we can counterbalance and overcome the law that bears us down. But to do this requires real spiritual energy, fixed purpose and a settled posture and habit of faith.
In the factory that relies on a single source of mechanical power, it is necessary to engage the belt that turns the central shaft and keep it engaged. The power is there, but only if the connection is maintained is it usable power to operate the machinery.
There is a spiritual law of choosing, believing, abiding and holding steady in our walk with God that is essential to the working of the Holy Spirit either in our sanctification or healing.
There is a word that saves the soul, "I will trust;"
It makes the sick and suffering whole, "I will trust."

[A. B. Simpson]

Romans 8:2 ... For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Proverbs 3:5 ... Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Psalm 18:2 ... The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
