The Brew Is A Musing

“Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” (Psalm 9:10, NIV 1984).

My Musings – How can merely knowing someone’s name result in trust?  It cannot.   The reputation that is associated with the name can point in the direction of trust.  But it requires more than a reputation. For reputation is merely the beliefs or opinions that are generally held about someone.  As we well know, generally held beliefs and opinions can be very misguided. Reputation must be substantiated by consistent unwavering performance, that warrants trust.  For example, “not one of all the LORD’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.”  (Joshua 21:44–45, NIV 1984).  The name (I AM who I AM), is backed up by faithful performance (I always do what I promise to do).

We can “trust in [Him],”

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
