Trust means a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. Just by hearing the word trust in the LORD alone is not clear without What or Who.
What are we or on whom should one be handing over all what concerns to them and how?
The answer is to THE LORD. GOD who is infinite- self -existing without origin, immutable- He never changes and many more.
This gives you confidence in him. Therefore; trusting in the LORD, means handing over everything to the one with ability to manage, change the direction, or restore order and stability into your life or your family.
We know this because, the Bible says that GOD created this earth, the heavens, and mankind itself which qualifies him to be more than capable to do more and even above all we can imagine on our own.
Brethren, think about it. What are you able to do without GOD allowing it? Worrying about a situation doesn’t automatically make it change.
However; if you give it to GOD, HE takes care of it either by giving you means to handle the situation, or by giving you the grace to sustain your through it.
Allow GOD to be your Heavenly Father by surrendering to him in complete trust and confidence. Confidence that HE will handle whatever concerns you.
In the book of Samuel, We learn that David trusted in GOD completely for his entire life. As you delve deeper into the book of Psalms, you can see this trust illustrated.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
First and foremost, nothing happens until the right time. Our GOD works on his own time. Therefore, the right time will come. In the meantime, know that HE is able and HE delights in those who consider him as their father.
Make the choice and everything will follow.
There is nothing too hard for God. And it is easy to trust him with all our problems and concerns because he loves and hears those who call on him. Book One of John, (5;14), says “And this is the confidence that we have towards him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.”
We can’t rush God or command him but we can talk to him about anything and ask him anything that concerns us. However, we have to believe and trust that it will happen.
Brethren, after doing things your way and failing or leaving an exhausted feeling or unsatisfied finish or sometimes still in the same place, try opening your heart and giving everything to God to deal with it in HIS own ways, and you will filled with peace.
Stay encouraged on his promises that he will never leave you or forsake you. Check back every Friday for more of my blogging series “What The Lord Has Laid In My Heart”.
