“Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.” Psalm 62:8 (NIV)

This beautiful verse is brimming with hope. The encouragement in David’s words provides a blueprint for prayer. Reread it, then let’s break it down together.

“Trust in him at all times” – It’s not about putting your trust in things, others or yourself. It’s about putting your trust in God in good times, rough patches and ugly cries, too. In every moment and corner of your heart, rely on Him.

“Pour out your hearts to him” – God knows, yet He wants to hear you tell Him about every sorrow and hurt along with the triumphs and confetti-throwing moments, too. As women, we often attempt to do things out of our strength. Let Him show you what He can do instead.

“God is our refuge” – When you are frightened, what do you do? Where do you seek safety? David sought refuge in God, and we should too. Trust Him to calm storms and provide safe passage across rugged terrains.

Your Heavenly Father loves you. David’s prayer paints the picture of what it’s like to trust without ceasing. Remember, God isn’t looking for elegant words and poetic imagery when you pray to Him. He’s looking for an authentic conversation based on total trust and love. Give talking to God a try today. He’s here and ready to listen.
