Consider this word of God from Psalm 40. When you make the decision to trust Him completely then you are blessed. The Lord wants to bless each one of us with more of Him. He wants us to believe Him completely. He even says in His Word that “eternal life is knowing Him.” God help us to realize every sentence, every phrase, yes, every word in Your Word is alive and true! Forgive us and help us for our unbelief!

Psalm 48:1,2,3,8-14 “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His Holiness. Beautiful for elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. God is known in her palaces for a refuge. As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it forever. We have thought of Your lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Your Temple. According to Your Name, O God, so is Your praise unto the ends of the earth: Your right hand is full of righteousness. Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of Your judgments. Walk about Zion and go round about her: number the towers thereof. Mark you well her bulwarks consider her palaces; that you may tell it to the generation following. For this God is our God forever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death,”
Isaiah 62: “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until its righteousness goes forth as brightness, and its salvation as a lamp that burns.
And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah: for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the LORD, keep no silence.
And give Him no rest, till He establishes, and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The Lord has sworn by His right hand, and by the arm of His strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your wine, for which you have labored:
But they that have gathered it shall eat it and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of My holiness.
Go through, go through the gates; prepare you the way of the people; build up, build up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a banner for the people.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed unto the ends of the earth, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and you shall be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.”
