6 a of 22 from Psalm 119
Looking at these verses again, we can see where we must place our trust. Our Psalmist states, “…for I trust in thy word.” (We place our Trust in God’s “word.”) It is not only the Cross on which Jesus died, nor the grave in which He was placed. These are definitely significant in the Gospel, (The Bible teaches these things.) However, our Trust and our Faith is placed solely in God’s Word, Jesus.
“The Word of God” Is His Son Jesus. Jesus Is The Christ, Our Lord, and Saviour, The Son of The Almighty God in Heaven. So, our “trust in thy word” is a reference to our Saviour Jesus. He Is The “Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” We are also told: “(3) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” With this now in mind, we now know that The Pre-incarnate Jesus was who walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden.
Jesus Is Our Saviour. Through Him Salvation has been imparted to millions, including myself. Salvation is given to those who ask (beg) for His Salvation, (those who willingly seek Him and drop to their knees with a repentant and humble heart.)
Within our hearts, (within our seeking Him) we must believe that Jesus is who God has told us He is. Salvation isn’t one choice, whereby we may chose our path to God. We are told in God’s Word, (that Word we are to trust in,) that our path to God is through Jesus His Son, and only through Jesus His Son.
I gained my “victory” because Jesus willingly went to the Cross, His Cross to die for my sins. “Reader, He also died for your sins.” He came to give Salvation to the lost, (those who do not know Him or His Father.)
“Do you know Him?” We are told in Romans Chapter 10:
God tells us (through Paul) that if we will Believe God has raised His Son Jesus from the grave, and in that belief/knowledge, we will Confess our Belief to others, God will give us the Gift of Salvation.
“Reader, it is “the gift of God” given to you because you accepted Jesus by faith, (Not of works,[or doing good deeds]) but what you believe.” Call on His name now, in belief and by faith in your heart.
Just do it.
