If our view of God is that He is one who is big and powerful,
then our problems will seem small.
Conversely, if our view of God is small,
our problems will be big.

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. – Psalm 56:3
I don’t think there is anything harder than standing strong in your faith when your knees are shaking, It is not easy to be resolved to “wait and see what the Lord has done for you” when all you may want to do is hide under the covers.
This approach of hiding my head in the sand is one I often took before realizing that running to God and not away from him was the key to putting things right.
Being a Christian is not about always having it all together. It is about knowing who to turn to when things are falling apart. This world is rough sometimes and as a result, you may feel as if you are freefalling to your doom.
When this happens, instead of sinking into depression, look up and keep your eyes fixed on God and freefall into the arms of the one who knows and loves you best.
He loves you and has not left you. He has a hope and plan for your life. If you want to see those plans come to fruition then you must trust him.
When fear comes banging on your door, get alone with God and pour out your heart to him. Then get in the word and allow him to pour out his heart to you.
Trusting God does not come easy at first but as you begin to continually see his faithfulness it will soon become as easy as falling off a log:)
Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
