Trust is a choice. We all want to trust something. We all do trust some things whether it is our own abilities, our job, or our God. We have to get smart enough to know who to trust and when to trust. Honestly, we are mere humans. The only one we can truly trust is God almighty.
Psalm 37:1-3 *(AMPC) 1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness (that which is not upright or in right standing with God). 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.
We may feel let down because we do not feel as if God has given us what we have prayed for. Sometimes I need to ask myself – was I trusting God for what I wanted or was I trusting God knowing He would do what is best for me in my life to fulfill the purpose He has for me in life. When everything around us seems to be falling apart, we are to trust God and do good.
Psalm 37:4-6 (AMPC) 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass. 6 And He will make your uprightness and right standing with God go forth as the light, and your justice and right as [the shining sun of] the noonday.
The bible has an answer for everything that bothers us in life. I have a medicine cabinet full of medicine that I take. What is not in that medicine cabinet is medicine I can take when someone wounds my soul because I trusted someone I should not have. While my medicine cabinet does not have anything that will take that hurt away, my God does. My medicine cabinet has medicine for my body but my God has medicine for my soul. The Word of God is medicine for everything that ails us on the inside.
Psalm 37:7-8 (AMPC) 7 Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass. 8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; fret not yourself—it tends only to evildoing.
When we are facing a trial or problem, our mind can just go crazy. It can seem like everyone around you is blessed or are getting blessings. Just stay patient. God has a different plan for each of us and He may want to bless you differently than others. The way to calm ourselves down is go to the Word of God, trust God, and continue doing good while we are praying for our situation.
Psalm 37:9 (AMPC) 9 For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait and hope and look for the Lord [in the end] shall inherit the earth.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God to let Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
