Trusting God is what God wants us to do! No matter what!!!

Life always brings us challenges, these challenges can shake us to the very core and cause us to question our faith. It is during these times that we need to lean on God even more. The Bible contains many scriptures that will help us weather any storm.

Here are five that are sure to help you find peace during any trial:

Matthew 6:25
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”

Sometimes we worry more than we pray. Can you imagine what would happen if for every second that we spent worrying, we prayed instead? Imagine for a moment the kind of peace that would settle in our hearts and soul. This is exactly what God wants us to do, he wants us to trust, pray and believe that he will make a way even in the toughest situations.

John 11:14-15
So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe.”

Lazarus was dead for days, his body had started to rot and his sisters were in despair. They had sent for Jesus but because he had taken too long to come Lazarus had died. They were distraught and disappointed. They did not realize that Jesus had deliberately delayed his arrival to create a miracle that would unhardened the heart of unbelievers and give them and their brother a testimony.

Do you feel that God has delayed your deliverance from a situation for too long? Remember that God is never late, he is always on time and he puts you through the test in order to give us a testimony.

Psalm 91: 1-3
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.”

Are you afraid? Why? All you have to do is rest in the Lord and he will deliver you from anything that will attempt to bring despair and misery into your life. He will protect you and give you peace as long as you trust in him. It doesn’t matter who or what rises up against you. He will deliver you out of their hands as long as you rest in him.

Matthew 5:4
“Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.”

Are you mourning? It might be the death a loved one, a broken relationship, a lost job or something that is bringing you deep grief. What a blessing it is to know that Jesus himself has promised to comfort us no matter what the heartache and what a blessing it is to know that Jesus never lies. Rest assured that the comforting hand of God is already reaching for you.

Prov. 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Throughout scripture the Lord admonishes us to trust in him. Think of someone you love very much and how much you enjoy it when they trust you and imagine how bad you would feel or have felt when they haven’t had confidence in you. This is exactly how God feels when we don’t trust him because he loves us so much. No matter what test you are going through believe and trust in the Lord and you will not be disappointed.

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!
