We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have—for a man who already has something doesn’t need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently. Romans 8:24-25 TLB
Often, we question what will happen next and forget who’s in charge of our days. We become frustrated when we’re not able to handle life on our own. But scripture tells us to TRUST and leave our worries behind. Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
God helps us discover His presence as we begin to recognize WHY we need Him. He reminds us He IS ABLE to do what we cannot. As we put our TRUST in Him, He helps us examine our lives and remember where HOPE is found. He humbles our hearts for Jesus and prepares us to learn how to faithfully follow.
Jesus guides us on a path paved by our Provider. When we choose to walk with Him, He forever blesses our lives. He provides PEACE in the presence of holiness and helps us move ahead as we examine our lives.
When we learn to surrender, Jesus helps us see what happens when we step in faith. He gives STRENGTH to discover where we will arrive. He allows us to experience how it feels to follow and places JOY where it will flourish in our faithfulness.
We must learn to TRUST and stop trying to handle everything on our own. If we pray and ask God to guide us, He will answer prayers in the timing of His will. He will navigate the journey and show where PEACE is found. If we remain faithful and keep on going, God will help us see how He's working in our days. He is God! He will handle EVERY single thing. We must believe and never doubt His ability to know what’s best for our lives.
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your love! You help us find STRENGTH in Your presence. We will TRUST in the plans You have for our days and find PEACE as we journey with Jesus. Help us remember to TRUST, so we will find joy from what waits to be discovered. We will keep stepping ahead and believe YOU ARE ABLE to lead us. Thank you for HOPE that comes from YOU. Thank you, Lord! Thank you for loving us through our doubt. Amen
