Rusting Or Trusting

Psalm 37:1-3 (NKJV)

The Heritage of the Righteous and the Calamity of the Wicked
A Psalm of David.

37 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

Rusting Or Trusting

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is an iconic image. But over the years engineers have been alarmed at the serious signs of corrosion. In any one year millions of dollars are spent fighting an endless battle with rust.

Anxiety is like rust. It coats and corrodes the mind, weakening the entire structure. Worry dissolves our peace just as rust eats away the strength of a bridge, weakening the metal that once was strong.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge will be fine. Workers continuously strip the structure back to bare metal and complete the rust proofing procedure and painting yearly. But how do you rust proof the heart?

You have to add a T and change rust into trust. The writer of Psalm 37 said, ” Trust in the Lord, Delight yourself also in the Lord, Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him, Do not fret”.

Are you Rusting or Trusting? Don’t rust. Trust!

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you. So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us at
