Do You?

          The scripture Isaiah 26:4-7 quoted below tells us to trust in the LORD.  We are also told in (Isaiah 26:4)  Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:  In each of these verses we see LORD written in capital letters.  In both cases we are given the definition of LORD is LORD JEHOVAH.
            In (Deuteronomy 6:5)  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.   In this verse we are told (Commanded) to love the LORD.
            God has not given us an out in what we are to do.   God, our Holy Father, the LORD JEHOVAH, loves us so much He gave His only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus the Christ, to hang and die on that “Old Rugged Cross.”  His death was for you and I so we would not have to hang on that tree for our own sins.  He paid the bill for the worthlessness of man. 
            We each are not capable individually nor as a church body to pay the bill for any sins,   (Romans 3:23)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;   however, we are not to use this verse or any verse as an excuse to sin.  We are to follow Jesus’ example and the Word of God our LORD JEHOVAH. 
            God tells us that those who do not follow Him will be brought down.  The way of the saved, those consecrated, set apart to God, are to follow a righteous path regardless of the consequences.   God tells us we will win in the end, so love Him, and Trust Him.
            We are not what we should be, but we have no excuse.  It should be our desire to live for Him, He lived and died on that cross for us.  Our verse below tells us to trust in the LORD for ever.  The question to us ought to be, Do I?

Isaiah 26:4-7  Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:  (5)  For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.  (6)  The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.  (7)  The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
