Trust Him

Posted on Posted in devotions

“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.

  1. Hi, Han is right. The app wasn’t working so I decided to come here instead and this word was just what I needed to he’s. I’m glad God let me to your site. Thank you for sharing daily what Gods speaking. I cannot express how much it encoursges me. More often than not I finish reading with tears in my eyes.
    So thank you.
    Also, if I could request a prayer. My name is Emma and I’m 17 years old. I have struggled with anxiety and panic attacks for 5 years. It started due to numerous dramatic life changes when I was 11. It increasingly got better with time but lately I’ve seen a decrease. I’m not sure why, but I desperately feel God pushing me to trust him. Please pray I would let go of control and just give my issues to God and let him take care of the rest.
    Thank you again,
    Emma 🙂

    1. Dear Emma,
      I pray for you, that God will show and speak to you in a personal way so that you will know that even if you are afraid that He is there with you and for you. The more you read and memorize The Bible, the stronger you will be. Psalms is a good place to start. blessings friend-
