As a child, there was a time I dreaded going to school. Some girls were bullying me by subjecting me to cruel pranks. So during recess, I’d take refuge in the library, where I’d read a series of Christian storybooks. I remember the first time I read the name “Jesus.” Somehow, I knew that this was the name of Someone who loved me. In the months that followed, whenever I’d enter school fearful of the torment that lay ahead, I’d pray, “Jesus, protect me.” I’d feel stronger and calmer, knowing He was watching over me. In time, the girls simply grew tired of bullying me and stopped.

Many years have passed, and trusting His name continues to sustain me through difficult times. Trusting His name is believing that what He says about His character is true, allowing me to rest in Him.

David, too, knew the security of trusting in God’s name. When he wrote Psalm 9, he had already experienced God as the all–powerful ruler who’s just and faithful (Psalm 9:7–8, 10, 16). David thus showed his trust in God’s name by going into battle against his enemies, trusting not his weapons or military skill, but in God ultimately coming through for him as “a refuge for the oppressed” (v. 9).

As a little girl, I called on His name and experienced how He lived up to it. May we always trust His name─Jesus—the name of the One that loves us.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread.

Our reading, titled Trust in His Name, was written by Karen Huang. As a child, there was a time I dreaded going to school. Some girls were bullying me by subjecting me to cruel pranks. So, during recess, I'd take refuge in the library, where I read a series of Christian storybooks. I remember the first time I read the name Jesus. Somehow, I knew that this was the name of someone who loved me. In the months that followed, whenever I'd enter school fearful of the torment that lay ahead, I'd pray, Jesus, protect me. I'd feel stronger and calmer, knowing He was watching over me.

In time, the girls simply grew tired of bullying me and stopped. Many years have passed, and trusting His name continues to sustain me through difficult times. Trusting His name is believing that what He says about His character is true, allowing me to rest in Him. David, too, knew the security of trusting in God's name. When he wrote Psalm 9, he'd already experienced God as the all-powerful ruler who is just and faithful. David thus showed his trust in God's name by going into battle against his enemies, trusting not his weapons or military skill, but in God ultimately coming through for him as a refuge for the oppressed. As a little girl, I called on His name and experienced how He lived up to it. May we always trust His name, Jesus, the name of the One that loves us.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Psalm 9, verses 7 through 12. The Lord reigns forever. He has established His throne for judgment.

He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You. Sing the praises of the Lord enthroned in Zion. Proclaim among the nations what He has done, for he who avenges blood remembers. He does not ignore the cries of the afflicted. Let's pray. Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us and giving us courage and peace when we face the ridicule of others. Teach us who You are so that we never have reason to doubt You in any circumstance we face. Thank You, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Joyce Dinkins, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
