Trust Him

May 18, 2017

“The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.” Psalms 34:22
What does it mean to trust God? It means to place your entire well-being into His hands. It also means you trust in His love for you, and the promises He’s made to you. One way He teaches us how to trust in Him is by using older saints to share their stories of how they made it through various challenges.
I once met an older woman who said all throughout her Bible she had written “tried and proven.” These words were written next to the scriptures she had stood on in faith and God had proven Himself to be faithful in her life. I believe if we had more women like her sharing their faith, their experiences and teaching younger women how to trust in God, we wouldn’t see so many lost and confused women in the church today.
Because there is no passing down of wisdom and no impartations of faith from older saints, women give up on life at the slightest attack from the devil. The smallest amount of persecution or pressure causes many of us to want to quit. I believe it’s because we don’t know how to go through anything. We don’t know how to handle challenges with class. We don’t know how to trust God until He brings us out. We don’t know how to stand on His promises and watch Him come through for us. We don’t know how to walk by faith and not by sight. No one taught us how to hang in there until we see the morning sun, so we die in the middle of the night. We throw in the towel and lose our minds and no longer desire to fight. We desperately need someone to come to our side, rest their hand on our shoulders and say, “Baby, everything is going to be alright. Trust in the Lord. He is faithful, and He will see you through anything.”
My sisters, you don’t have to lose your mind. You don’t have to have a nervous breakdown. You don’t have to lose yourself. You can decide right now that you will trust God until He makes a way out of no way for you.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to my heart! I choose right now to place my trust in you. Help me stand on your promises until you make a way out of no way for me. Help me Lord to trust in your love for me no matter how things appear. As I place my trust in you, I ask that you strengthen me and be glorified in my life! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    I Don’t Feel No Ways Tired
    I don’t feel no ways tired
    I’ve come too far from where I started from
    Nobody told me that the road would be easy
    I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me
    I don’t believe He brought me this far
    I’ve been sick
    (I don’t believe)
    But God brought me
    (He brought me this far)
    I’ve been in trouble
    (I don’t believe)
    But God brought me
    (He brought me this far)
    I’ve been friendless
    (I don’t believe)
    But God brought me
    (He brought me this far)
    I’ve been lonely
    (I don’t believe)
    But God brought me
    (He brought me this far)
    Please, don’t leave me
    (I don’t believe)
    Don’t leave me Jesus
    (He brought me this far)
    Don’t leave
    This place is not my home address hallelujah JESUS!

    Value and Importance of Knowing the Father
    To all my sisters and Christ!
    Blessings!
    “‘Our Father who is in heaven . . .’” (Matthew 6:9).
    Knowing God as our Father carries with it a definite list of spiritual privileges and benefits. First, it means we need not fear, as pagans do before their false gods or unbelievers do in their agnosticism.
    Second, real knowledge of God resolves uncertainties and gives us hope. A good earthly father does what it takes to protect and provide for his children; so our heavenly Father does much more to love and sustain His children (cf. Matt. 7:11; John 10:29; 14:21).
    Third, knowing the Father alleviates loneliness. Family, friends, and even other believers may reject us, but we can be sure that God never will (John 14:21; cf. Ps. 68:5–6).
    Fourth, knowing God as Father settles the issue of selfishness. Jesus used the plural possessive pronoun in reference to God because we share His fatherhood with millions of other Christians. Thus we ought to pray for others, not just ourselves.
    Fifth, genuine knowledge of the Father means all His heavenly resources are available to us (Eph. 1:3).
    Finally, this comprehension settles the issue of obedience. If Jesus in His incarnation did only His Father’s will (John 6:38), we as adopted spiritual children must also do only God’s will. This proves our relationship to Him (Matt. 12:50). Yet God in His grace still loves His children who disobey (cf. Luke 15:11–24).
    Being our Father reveals God’s willingness to lend His ear, power, and blessings to His children, for their best and His glory.
    Ask Yourself
    Which of these six benefits of God’s Fatherhood struck you as most comforting and compelling today? What needs in your life does this particular blessing of God meet? And how does it do so in ways that no person could ever accomplish?
