Trust is not always easy to do, especially if we have been hurt by others or people in our lives have failed to keep their promises. Have you ever heard someone just say trust me and you just want to say well that is easier said then done. Maybe the people in your life you have trusted have stabbed you in the back too many times and you have built a wall up around your heart now and it's just too hard to let anyone in! Well, my friend, please let me share with you that you are not the first person this has happened to! I have been there way more times then I can count, but I have Good News, there is a friend I know who sticks closer than a brother, who we can count on. A friend who always keeps His Word and never breaks His promises! His name is JESUS!!
There is so much scripture to back this up and I could quote it all day long to you but the fact of the matter is, is that Jesus wants you to experience this for yourself! He wants so much for you to do this thing called life and the faith walk with Him. You see this road we have been called out on is not always an easy road to walk, but we have been chosen for it! He has a greater plan then we have for ourselves and He sees the bigger picture. But this relationship with Jesus requires trust in who He is and Faith in Him. Believing that He is the Lord Almighty, that He can do what He says He can do and that He has us in His hands. That is what a truly surrendered life is!
Does this mean we just skip throughout the day and never have a care in the world? Haha! I wish, I could do that, but I'm not that good yet!! LOL! I just questioned God just this week about some situations that arose in my life and I was saying to Him, "God you see that I have been faithful, so why is this so hard?" But, then I turned around and I found myself in the same sentence saying, "but God no matter what I will still trust You, You have brought me through too many times!" Well, the moral of the story is God showed up the very next morning and showed just how FAITHFUL HE IS, even when I am not. All I could do was fall on my knees and thank Him and praise Him for how good He is and say yet again, "God You are always on time so I will yet again continue to TRUST YOU"!!
See, God does not fail, even though man fails us and we fail ourselves so many times, God is still on the throne and He loves His children so much and He came to give us an abundant life and He keeps showing me if I will just give Him all of my worries and trust Him in every situation and through every circumstance, even when things don't work out the way I think that they should or when I think they should, He has my best at hand and He knows what is best for me and for you! And no matter what you have walked through in the past, God can work it for His glory!!
Choose to STAND ON HIS PROMISES!! Do not be shaken or tossed to and fro from your circumstance! JESUS IS COMING SOON!! Let's be found faithful serving Him with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds and all our strength! God bless you as you continue in your relationship with Jesus!!!
