Trusting God with your life

At a certain point, you just have to start trusting God.

· assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something

· dependence on something future or contingent; hope 

Losing myself and following God’s will are impossible without a relentless faith that the Universe is divinely operating according to God’s Love for me.

But, oh, how we struggle!

At times it feels like we’re just out there on our own. Like God is not at all hearing us. We ask, when God? How? Who? What?

I want the exact date and time with detailed instructions on how to do it (which should be easy and not require much). I want to know who’s going to be involved. And I want a report on how it’s going to end up.

(Hope that’s not just me!)

Most of the time we’re so focused on what is front of us that we lose sight of the bigger picture.

We can all recite stories from the Bible in which God has actively revealed Himself and made miracles happen. But try this: set aside those stories for a moment and look at your own life. Where and how has God shown up for you? I guarantee you have a testimony. I know without a doubt that He’s present in my life

So let me (let us!) remember that our God is an active God. He hasn’t just left us here to run around in circles until the end comes.

He wants us to enjoy life right now!

To do that, we have to start believing that God will. He will! He will love us. He will never give up on us. He will pursue us. He will invite us to partner with Him. He will reveal to us. He will enable us. He will equip us. He will do all these things at the appointed time.

And, the best part is that even when we don’t believe, we can count on His grace. Read Exodus. God provided miracles, signs and wonders and still the people of Israel doubted; yet, God’s plan was completed. You see, no matter what you’re doing, you just can’t stop the plan of God. He is the ultimate finisher.

So join Him. Get into relationship with Him. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Believe that He will answer. Trust Him.

Have faith! He doesn’t need much. A mustard seed will do. 
trust and faith

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20).
