Trust God not your feelings.
Most of us are the same way, aren’t we? In our world of budgets, long-range planning and computers, don’t we find it hard to trust in the unbelievable? Don’t most of us tend to scrutinize life behind furrowed brows and walk with cautious steps? It’s hard for us to imagine that God can surprise us. To make a little room for miracles today, well, it’s not sound thinking. As a result, we, like Thomas, find it hard to believe that God can do the very thing that he is best at; replacing death with life. We doubt God’s ability to replace death with life.
Have you ever been in a situation when you were asked to do something without asking why?
One of the most difficult questions to answer in Christian life is when, “What do we expect to do?” When we don’t know what we are going to do.
Right now, I’m in the midst of big decision making. And right now, And I think I’m going to have a hard time making this decision. It’s time to identify what my job, career and calling really are.
The only thing I know is that God knows what He is doing.
I keep examining my attitude towards God to see if I am really willing to “obey and trust” Him in every area of my life, putting my faith in Him entirely. It is this attitude that challenges me and keeps me in constant wonder, because I don’t know what God is going to do next.
I’m sure for the next couple of days, every morning as you wake, there is a new opportunity to “…go worry about your life…nor about the body…” (Luke 12:22). In other words, we shouldn’t worry about the things that concerned us before we put our trust and obedience to God. (Easier said than done. I’m also preaching to myself in this area.)
Have you been asking God what He is going to do? What if He doesn’t tell you? I think most of the time that’s the question we find ourselves trying to answer. God does not tell us what He is going to do-He reveals to us His character. Who He is. Do You believe in a miracle working God, will you completely trust and obey in complete surrender until you are not surprised by anything He does?
Let’s believe that God is the same God whom we know Him to be when we are nearest to Him. Then difficult as it may seem, think how unnecessary and disrespectful worry is! Let the attitude of our heart be a continual willingness to trust and obey Him. Total dependence upon God no matter what.
We have to be willing to let go of our strengths, abilities, achievements or experiences until we come to the point in our faith where there is nothing between ourselves and God.
John 15:2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, He takes away. And every one that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bring forth more fruit.
Whatever you’re doing inside of me, It feels like chaos but still there’s peace knowing that you are my Lord Jesus.
“Worry is an act of rebellion: it is doubting God’s promises to care for you.”
Today I declare peace and order over you. When you are at peace, you are in alignment with Almighty God—a position of strength and power! -Victoria Osteen
..then you will know that I am the Lord, those who hope in me WILL NOT be disappointed.” - Isaiah 49:23
Give me your hand to hold
'Cause I can't stand to love alone
And love alone is not enough to hold us up
We’ve got to touch Your robe
