To develop an acrostic, I unite two things that I love to do: study God’s Word, and play with words. As a result, I am encouraged by the unalterable truth that I rearrange, and have something to share with you! Be blessed as you read this acrostic on TRUST.
T “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.” Psalm 37:3
R “Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of…” Psalm 37:7
U “Under His wings you shall take refuge…you shall not be afraid.” Psalm 91:4,5
S “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7
T “Those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.” Psalm 9:10

Nights are dark. Sometimes they can be long; very long. Looking at some verses in the Bible that refer to night, I found how much God is involved in our lives, even in the night. Here’s what I found:
GOD’S PEACE: Psalm 4:8: “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” Praise God that HE gives us peaceful sleep!
GOD’S PRESENCE: Exodus 13:21,22: “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light,…He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.” Praise God for His presence with us – 24/7.
GOD’S PROVISION: Job 35:10: “…God my Maker, who gives songs in the night.” Praise God that HE gives songs in the night!
GOD’S PROMISE: Psalm 30:5: “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” Praise God that HE promised that the morning will bring joy to replace our tears!
GOD’S PROTECTION: Psalm 91:4,5: “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day.” Praise God that HE protects us day and night!
GOD’S PLAN: Psalm 119:148: “My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate on Your word.” Praise God that we can meditate on HIS word when we can’t sleep!
Next time our night seems too long, let’s rest in His peace; thank Him for His presence, protection and provision, and rejoice in His promise that joy WILL come in the morning!
