It can seem tough to trust God when we don’t quite understand something that is going on in life or to us in life. It can be challenging to trust God when everything around us is falling apart and we don’t seem to see a blessing coming our way. I can tell you is the only way we develop faith and trust in God is having a reason to. As we journey with God we see His faithfulness and we gain experience. The way we trusted God yesterday will be different than how we trust God tomorrow.
Hebrews 12:26-27 (AMPC) 26 Then [at Mount Sinai] His voice shook the earth, but now He has given a promise: Yet once more I will shake and make tremble not only the earth but also the [starry] heavens. 27 Now this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all [that can be] shaken—that is, of that which has been created—in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue.
Trusting God is a decision. No matter what is going on around you, your answer is to trust God even when you do not understand what is going on in your life and things don’t seem to be fair. Many times we put our confidence in people our ourselves in our problems. We are to put our trust in God in our situations. God may strip some people out of our lives so we learn to rely on and trust Him in our situations. People are human and we are going to get hurt when we rely on people. The only one we should give our complete trust to is Jesus!
Isaiah 40:29-31 (AMPC) 29 He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. 30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; 31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
Things that are going on in our life right now that does not make sense will make sense later on in life. A lot of things we go through that we think are terrible are sometimes in the long run good for us. The things that may not be good – we can trust God that He will work that bad thing out for good. No matter how shaken our life may be, we can re-build!
Hebrews 12:28-29 (AMPC) 28 Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and godly fear and awe; 29 For our God [is indeed] a consuming fire.
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
