A large part of trusting God involves understanding what it
is we are trusting Him to do. Basically, what are Gods promises? If we are
trusting Him to keep his word, it seems important to know what exactly he
Take psalms 30:5 for example.
“The righteous cry, and the Lord hears and delivers them out
of all their troubles.”
Today you can talk to God and say perhaps,
“God, you said you would hear me and deliver me… not from SOME of my problems, but from ALL of my troubles. You promised. I believe you. You don’t say things just for the fun of it. Your word comes with power and action. Help me fully trust your word and stop worrying. You said you would deliver me and I trust you. I believe you.
Your “will,” however, is what matters. I trust you to deliver me from my troubles in Your way, not mine. I know you already know what I need and you already know the way to provide it. Let my human will step aside so I can fully accept and desire your will and your answers.”
What happens if we turn to God, yet don’t fully expect to
see results? Isn’t it impossible to trust AND doubt at the same time?
As you pray today, open your heart completely to God’s will
and his promise to deliver you out of all your troubles. Although we wish the
results were instantaneous, God has beautifully orchestrated our lives for
optimum growth. Embrace it.
Know fully that your troubles are temporary and smile knowing He does hear your cry and promised to deliver you out of every difficulty. We just don’t know what it will look like or when it will happen.
Our job is to let our hearts fully trust that His will IS being done. Then, and
only then, can we truly let go and trust him.
