The Lord has commanded all believers to trust Him and obey His word in spite of the situation we find ourselves in.

Trust And Obey hymn story

The background of the song ‘Trust and Obey’ is very interesting. Once, a young man stood up to testify at a Dwight L. Moody evangelistic meeting in Brockton, Massachusetts, one night. He spoke about his confidence in God’s salvation and obedience to His will.

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

He said, “I am not quite sure,” about God saving him from his sins, but he continued, “But I’m going to trust, and I’m going to obey”—meaning he planned to continue trusting God for his salvation and to do God’s will.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

“I’m going to trust, and I’m going to obey.” Daniel Towner the song leader for that meeting said. He was so impressed by the young man’s testimony that he wrote down those words and kept it in his pocket. He later told a friend, John Sammis. In his letter, he wrote about the young man’s testimony and the words he spoke, “I am not quite sure, but I’m going to trust, and I’m going to obey.”

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

Sammis used those words to write a hymn chorus: “Trust and obey, For there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.” He had five stanzas to go with the chorus, and he sent them to Towner, who composed the tune that we still sing today.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

It’s so encouraging to hear this musical rendition by Fountainview Academy students today of one of the most well-known songs about trusting God that is sung by the universal church of God. It reminds us that God can use every word of faith that we speak and our actions in ways beyond our imagination. Amen.

Verse of the Day

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)
