Have a powerful year by doing this simple thing

Why are we so afraid to trust God?

Why do we insist on doing things our own way?

Is it that we have forgotten:

Who we serve

The great and awesome God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments.- Nehemiah 1:5 (ESV)

His Faithfulness

The Lord will not abandon his chosen people, for that would dishonor his great name. – 1 Samuel 12:22 (ASV)

His Love

His loving kindness is everlasting. – Psalm 136:4 (NASB)

His ability

Is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. – Ephesians 3:20 (ASV)

We are not in this alone!

God told us to keep our focus on Him and everything else would be added to us because He knew the strength that we will receive when meditating on how awesome and amazing He is, is enough to get us through any situation that life throws at us. 

When we keep our focus on our problems it is easy to find ourselves dragging through each day. But when we keep our focus on who He is, who He has always been, we are refreshed and strengthened and able to do all that we are called to do, and then some.

If you are tired of being tired, if you feel that you are just barely getting through the day, press into focusing on God. 

Look up scriptures that talk of Gods character and meditate on them.

Let this coming year be the year that you stop living in your worry and fear and begin to live fully in the strength and power of the God who loves you so.

What it means to have God as father

To know God as Father means to have a healer who will calm the storms that rage within. It means to have a father who will help you to “be strong, courageous, and firm; [and] be not in terror … for it is the Lord your God who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.”[1] To know God as Father means to know what it is like to have a father who is “gracious and merciful, slow to anger, [and] abundant in kindness.[2] And it means being able to trust a father who will never hurt you or let you down. You can trust God! He is with you now.
