“Just Trust God”

“Just trust God.” You hear that a lot when you are going through a difficult time in you life. But it is so much easier said than done. What does trusting God look like when you’re facing circumstances that are scarier than you ever could have imagined? Or when you’re in a fearful time of waiting, your mind racing through all the possible unknowns? I hope this minister to anyone who going through a difficult time in their life right now.

As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things (Ecclesiastes 11:5).

There is no verse in the Bible that says, “Work to understand My plans exactly.” However, we find multiple verses about God’s plans being sovereign and hard for humans to comprehend and even more verses about trusting God.

Isaiah 55:8 says, “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD.”

Isaiah 30:15 says, “In quietness and trust is your strength.”

So instead of trying so hard to figure out what God is up to, let’s focus on trusting Him for His best! And the quickest way to trusting God is knowing God. Study His character and His love, and grow deeper in your faith.

How can we know that we are really trusting God? First of all, we are happy to give our worries to Him, because we believe that He is sovereign and good. We invite Him into the mess and surrender our fears, allowing Him to work in his sovereignty. Also, we sense God’s promised peace. In the middle of a storm, we have a deep knowledge that God is there. In the words of Chris Tomlin, “I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side.”

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
