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)
The Lord will not abandon his chosen people, for that would dishonor his great name. – 1 Samuel 12:22 (ASV)
His loving kindness is everlasting. – Psalm 136:4 (NASB)
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.
All of us, even the most skilled, the most organized among us,
face a future that is unknown.
To many of us worry about it.
If we are Christian we can say with confidence
“My future may be unknown,
But my God is not!”
Instead of worrying, praise God that He will bring you through.
Do not allow what you “see” in the natural to dictate your feelings or actions.
Rest in what you KNOW about God.
Rest in the truth of who you KNOW Him to be.
As Heb 11:1 (Emphasis Mine)says
FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (AMP).
Faith is an action word. It is a now thing. We are to be convinced that God is about to come through.
If you are going through a struggle and your faith is week
Ask God to strengthen your faith.
Ask God to give you peace, and hope, and an assurance of a the best possible outcome.
He will do so.
And when the doubts start to rise
run back to Him again
He will always be there (even when silent).
If you want a great faith
This is where you get it
