Trust In The Lord

Isaiah 26:4 (ESV) … “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”


Trust in the Lord forever; In the Word of the Lord for ever and ever, as the Targum again; that is, at all times, in every state and condition, in times of affliction, temptation, and darkness; for he’ll support under, and in his own time deliver out of every trouble, and cause all things to work together for good; and trust in him always, for every thing, for all temporal blessings, and for all spiritual ones, and for eternal life and happiness; for he has them, has promised them, and will give them: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength; Christ is the Lord Jehovah, which is, and was, and is to come, self-existent, eternal, and immutable; and in him is strength, as well as righteousness for his people; and that for every thing it is wanted for, to bear up under temptations and afflictions, to withstand every spiritual enemy, to exercise every grace, and discharge every duty: and this strength is everlasting; it always continues in him, and is always to be had from him; he is the eternal God, who is the refuge of his people, and his arms of power and might underneath them are everlasting: the words may be rendered, for in Jah is Jehovah, the Rock of ages; Jehovah the Son is in Jehovah the Father, according to John 10:38 and 14:11 or Jah Jehovah is the Rock of ages, so Vitringa; he is the Rock on which the church and every believer is built, against which the gates of hell cannot prevail; and he has been the Rock of his people in ages past, and will be in ages to come: or of worlds; this world, and that to come; and so it is explained in the Talmud, he that trusts in the Lord has a refuge in this world, and in the world to come.[1]
