11 Reasons To Trust God While Waiting will give you a fresh understanding of how and why to trust God from Psalm 34 when you have trust issues.
Have you ever been in a spiritual season where you keep praying with mountain-moving faith and no results?
I certainly have experienced this! And not once but numerous times!
While reading the entire chapter of Psalm 34 – I had to humbly confess to God, confess where I didn’t trust Him completely, confess where I placed my trust in other things, and allow myself to get side tract and focus on the enemy and not on God.
This also reminds me of the song by Matt Redman “…..I’m sorry for the things I’ve made it when it’s all about You, all about You Jesus…..I’m coming back to the heart of worship where it’s all about You Jesus!”
May the Holy Spirit minister to you and bless you beyond anything you experience before through this article.
When reading the entire Psalm in context David refers to the fear of God and trust in God as the preconditions to the promises.
I looked up the meaning of the words trust and fear of God.
Trust firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.Oxford Dictionary
Fear of God may refer to fear itself, but more often to a sense of awe, and submission to, a deity.Wikepedia
Just look how beautiful is this! Not an anxious fear of God, but instead a sense of awe and submission to God! That’s worship!
No surprise then that the first 3 verses of Psalm 34 are praise and worship.
I will bless the Lord at all times;Psalm 34:1-3
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

To clearly understand the text I put next to fear in brackets awe, submission, and worship.
- God will deliver us from our fears (ungodly fear) when we sought Him (verse 4).
- When we cry out to God, He will hear and save us from all our troubles (verse 6).
- God’s angels encamp around us when we fear (awe and submission) Him and deliver us (verse 7).
- We must know the Lord is good and we will be blessed when we trust Him (verse 8).

Next time when the waiting for God’s answers to your prayers feels too long and dragged out, read Psalm 34 again and start thanking Him for all His promises to trust Him while waiting.
Always remember many hardships and perplexing circumstances confront us when we serve the Lord, but God will rescue us from them all.
