“Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!” (Psalm 40:4) Having reflected on God’s faithfulness to him, David declares this commendation of those who, like him, wait upon the Lord. He waited on the Lord, and was not disappointed (vv.1-3); his deliverance became a testimony to others, that they likewise “put their trust in the LORD” (v.3). This is the way of wisdom, that pierces the vanity of the world.
Trust in the Lord. When days are dark, keep your courage, hold onto your hope, and trust in the Lord. God looks kindly on the humble, and receives all who cast themselves upon His redeeming love. God is faithful, merciful and compassionate; blessed are those who trust in Him.
