Steadfast means committed, unwavering, reliable and trustworthy.
He will not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. (Ps 112:7, underscoring added)
But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil. (Pro 1:33) Wisdom is speaking in the passage. When we obey wisdom, we obey God.
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for in Yahweh, the Lord, is everlasting strength. (Isa 26:3-4) When we are focused upon the Lord, with absolute trust, our hearts will be filled with the peace that passes all understanding.
Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. (Joh 14:1) Jesus is speaking in this verse, and He’s encouraging us to believe in Him. He’s inviting us to rely upon Him and to have confidence in Him.
The point of these verses that I’ve shared is that under all circumstances, even in the midst of challenges and painful trials, a believer knows the beautiful character of Jesus, and is able to trust Him effortlessly. Why? Because Jesus is a good and loving Savior.
The Lord’s plans for us are good plans intended to give us a good future. We can see the only person who can prevent those plans from coming to pass when we look into the mirror!
If we don’t cooperate with the Lord, if we don’t trust Him and place all of our faith in Him, then we cannot blame God for whatever mess in which we eventually find ourselves.
Place all of your hope, faith and trust in the Lord. Yield to God’s plans and His ways, and you will be blessed. Hallelujah!
