Do we trust God as much as He trusts us?

You know you feel this way some days. But, God does trust us. Think about it. Everything that is happening in our life is for our good.

Do we trust Him as much as He trusts us?

“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.” ~~Mother Teresa

“A thick bankroll is no help when life falls apart, but a principled life can stand up to the worst..” ~~King Solomon

We think that money will save us. If we get in a tight spot, we know we can whip out our credit cards. God was willing to  give King Solomon anything he wanted. He asked for wisdom.

Despite his wealth as King, he knew that money isn’t the answer. God is the answer. He will see us through when everything falls apart. It is interesting that on our money it says “In God we trust”. Amen.

“A thick bankroll is no help when life falls apart, but a principled life can stand up to the worst..” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 11:4)

Worrying always results in missing God’s goal

Worrying always results in missing God’s goal. Fear paralyzes and keeps us from acting on what God has planned for us right now.

May I trust Him.

Completely.

Always.

New Year’s resolutions. Trusting in ourselves or God?

January 2, 2013 3 comments

David Platt cautions us about making new year’s resolutions and striving to keep them by trusting in ourselves rather than God.

Jesus challenges us to trust in God and God alone. This is not about making ourselves better. This about bring honor to God. That is all that counts.

“You can trust my decision because I’m not out to get my own way but only to carry out orders.” ~~Jesus

Jesus can be trusted. He doesn’t have a self serving bone in His body. He only does what He sees the Father doing. That is it. He is all about loving God. He always realizes God’s goal. He is the perfect Son.Trust - 01

He challenges us to live the same way with the same power of God’s Holy Spirit. We can trust Jesus. He is looking out for our best interests.

Obedience becomes the central issue. Will we carry out orders? Will we obey God?

“You can trust my decision because I’m not out to get my own way but only to carry out orders.” ~~Jesus (John 5:30-33 The Message)

“I am going to put it all together, pull it all together in a vast panorama.” ~~Jesus

Jesus has it all together. All the complexity we see. All we don’t understand. He sees it simply. He understands it all. He is putting it all together.Complexity

If we want understanding, let us go to Him. Jesus is the author of our life in God and He is the one who is going to finish it all out. We have nothing to worry about. He has it all figured out. Our job is to trust Him.

“I am going to put it all together, pull it all together in a vast panorama.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:17-18 The Message)
