I Need you to Trust me, so I can Trust you

Trust-building-blocks

When I was younger, two of the first Bible scriptures I remember learning and actually memorizing was Proverbs chapter 3 verses 5 and 6. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.’ For some reason these scriptures just resonated in my heart as a child and they still do to this day. It reminds me that no matter what, I am to trust God at all times and most importantly stop trying to figure everything out. I have to be honest, me not trying to figure stuff out is a battle I deal with on a daily basis. I am bothered when I do not know something or when things do not go as I expect them to. Hence the reason we are to take comfort in the scriptures and lean not on our own understanding. At the end of the day, I have come to realize that some things I will never understand, but that must never affect my trust in God. Instead, I am learning to use one of the most powerful tools that God has given all of us. I am learning to pray more and more. The more you pray, the stronger you become. The less you depend on self and realize where your strength comes from, the easier it will be for you to trust Him completely.

While in my prayer/study time the other day God gave me a huge revelation that I want to share with you. He said, “I need you to trust me, so I can trust you”. That moment was life changing for me. God needs you and me to trust Him in every area of our life, stop trying to figure it out, lean not on your own understanding. In doing so, He will then be able to trust you. Are you still waiting on your financial break through? Are you still anticipating a promotion on your job? Are you still hoping for a new business? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have one more for you. Can God trust you? Make a decision today.  Decide to fully and truly trust God with all areas of your life; finances, children, health, employment, family, school, etc…then yes He will be able to trust you because He knows that no matter what, you are not going to lean on your own understanding, instead you are going to acknowledge Him in everything so He can direct your paths.

The God that we serve is a BIG God. He’s a merciful God. He’s a gracious God. He’s a giving God. His love is perfect. He wants to see you succeed. He wants you to own your own business. He wants you to write a book. He wants you to graduate from college. He wants your body healed. Most of all, He wants you to trust Him so He can trust you.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. (Psalms 37: 3-6 NIV)

Be the Awesome Person you were Created to Be

you_are_awesome

Today I want to remind you to be awesome!  Let go of your past. Everyone makes mistakes, or as the Bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Good news is, you don’t have to stay down. Repent, ask God to forgive you and He will. Then forgive yourself and move forward. Do not allow your sin to hold you captive. One of the best examples of this can be seen through David, who we’ve come to know as a man after God’s own heart. David was nowhere near perfect. He made many mistakes in his life, he was a murderer, he was adulterer just to name a few but no matter what he did he always went back to God. Let David be an example to us all of what it means to be someone after God’s own heart.

What does it mean to be someone after God’s own heart? It means you have a relationship with God. When you have a relationship with someone, you spend time with them. You talk to them. You listen to them. You trust them. You do right by them. This is the type of heart we should have for our Heavenly Father. In addition to all of the above, “God is spirit, so we must worship Him in spirit and truth”(John 4:24 KJV). You cannot worship God fully in spirit and in truth if you are still holding on to past mistakes. Not only can you not worship freely, you cannot live freely. This is called bondage and satan wants to keep you in bondage. He wants your mind to be held captive to your faults. He wants to keep you in a dark place in life, because he knows that when you see the light you will be able to walk in the full purpose and destiny in which God has for your life. When you walk in the light you are then able to be the man or woman who God created you to be.

Know your enemy. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy and he is going to do that be any means necessary. Do not allow him to beat you up with condemnation. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. You might feel convicted, which you should because that just means the Holy Spirit is living inside of you. But you should never feel condemned. Stand up and take your rightful place in the Kingdom of God. Let go of those mistakes, free yourself from bondage and be the awesome person that you were created to be!

Lay it Down

letstalkaboutlife365.com(layitdown)

Do you ever feel as though you have the weight of the world on your shoulders? I can think of a few times in my past where I have felt this way, not quite understanding why. If you are feeling this way, I want to encourage you to do a little self-evaluation. Who are you around? If you had to document every moment of your day-to-day activities, what do you spend the majority of your time doing? I assure you that somewhere along the line, the burdens you carry were never intended for you to carry in the first place. The word of God says that He will never give us more than we can bear. But what about the stuff you gave yourself? Some stuff you are experiencing in life right now come from you.

If you allow yourself to be in a situation that you were never meant to be in, you end up carrying a burden you were never meant to carry. You cannot be every thing to every body. Learn how to pray for people, trust God then let it go. Do not let other people’s problems become your problem. Make it up in your mind that you will not disappoint God by trying to take things into your own hands. Watch how much better you feel when you make the decision to trust God, not worry and lay everything at His feet in prayer.

Remember, there are consequences behind every action, so if you decide not to trust God and do things on your own then you have to accept and deal with the results. Our loving Father holds the world in His hand, so there’s no reason you should feel like you have to carry it on your back. He has granted us the opportunity to come to Him in prayer at any time. When a friend, loved one, or complete stranger comes to you with a problem, don’t try and handle it yourself. The best thing you can do is pray.

One last thing, make prayer your first resort, not your last. While you’re trying to figure it out, God has already worked in out. In your prayer time, ask God to rid you of every unnecessary burden and shut every door you have opened for yourself and open new doors that only He can open to keep you in line with His will.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27 NKJV
