Trusting God

Filed under: General,Uncategorized — roses2remember @ 9:31 pm

Lately I feel that God is asking me to trust Him on a deeper level.  Years ago I trusted in Jesus as my Lord and Savior so I know I have eternal life, but I think there is so much more of God to be experienced right now.

One of my favorite Scripture verses is Proverbs 3:5,6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.”  I feel that I trust in the Lord and that I acknowledge Him, but I have a hard time not leaning on my own understanding.  I am working on it!

One major decision I made was to limit watching the news and news talk shows.  They seem to be preaching a message of doom and discouragement.  Instead I have been reading and listening to what God says.  He says that there is good in my future as well as health and prosperity.  As I have turned from what the world/media is saying and started believing in God’s Word, I have seen my business prosper in a declining economy, and I have experienced healing of an infirmity that I have been struggling with for over 20 years.  I even managed to avoid the Swine flu without getting the flu shot!  I have an inner peace and joy that keeps growing and growing.

Yet even after experiencing all of these blessings from God, I feel there is more.  In fact I think I am only limited in what God has for me by my level of trust and faith.  In Mark 11:23 Jesus says, “Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.  For this reason I am telling you whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that it is granted to you, and you will have it.”  Do you have mountain moving faith?  We will never have it until we get to know Jesus.  We can’t trust someone we don’t know.

I have made another important decision.  My life is now centered around strengthening my relationship with God.  I spend time with Him, worship Him, read His Word and talk to Him.  It is awesome that He talks to me as well – mainly be revealing truth to me during my Bible reading!

Be bold!  Join with me in seeking a closer relationship with God.  Let’s ask  Him to bring about His promises for our lives.  The world is looking for something real and true.  What better than to see believers walking in the power of the Holy Spirit with signs and wonders following?  I am confident we will see the goodness of God in the land of the living!

God is faithful to His promises!
