Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 11th December

Trust and Do; Do and Trust

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so you shall dwell in the land, and truly be fed. (Psalm 37:3)

Trust and do are words which go well together. We should have faith, and that faith should work. We do not sit still because we trust, but we arouse ourselves and expect the Lord to work through us and by us. It is not ours to worry and do evil but to trust and do good. We neither trust without doing nor do without trusting.

Adversaries would root us out if they could; but by trusting and doing we dwell in the land. We are not so easily to be got rid of as the Lord’s enemies suppose. Where God has given us a name and a place, there we abide.

But what about the supply of our necessities? As sure as God is true, His people shall be fed. It is theirs to trust and to do, and it is the Lord’s to do according to their trust. They shall be fed somehow. Away, fears!
