Knowing and Trusting God

Psalm 9 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:10

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart.  Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible and really make an effort to understand who He is. The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him. You will know His true nature, power, wisdom, faithfulness and goodness. When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He is always there for you.

Faith Over Fear

Psalm 56 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 56:3

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

David was afraid for his life yet he trusted in God. If he had let fear over take his faith, he may have had a different outcome. Likewise, the enemy will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life.  He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to accomplish what God has planned for you. Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone. When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God is with you and He will equip you for what He has called you to do.  So many people never achieve the success God has planned for them because they are too afraid to take the first step. Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.

God’s Grace

2 Corinthians 12 9

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 12:9

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.

God’s grace is enough to transform any situation. The more you trust in God the more His strength and power are evident in your life. When you are weak call on the Lord, He will strengthen and support you as you go through trials. He will comfort and refresh your spirit as you trust in Him. It may not be easy, but when you surrender to God, He will give you peace like no other. The world we live in has changed drastically and the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour but God’s saving grace gives you the victory.

God’s Timing

Habakkuk 2 3

Verse of the Day:  Habakkuk 2:3

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end; it will not lie, if it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

We need to learn patience while we stay persistent in prayer, never giving up, all the while trusting in God and in His timing.  Though we may not know the exact time God has already determined we do know that God keeps His promises. We cannot rush Him, but we can be sure He will not disappoint and while we wait on Him we must remain faithful.  God’s timing is perfect, never late and always on time.

Experience God for Yourself

Psalm 34 8

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

I am personally inviting you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God.

My Provider

Philippians 4 19

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:19

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

If you’ve never gone through something so difficult that you can’t see how you’re going to make it through and you can’t see the light at the end of tunnel these may just feel like words on paper. But I’m here to tell you from personal experience that God will see you through hardships and He will provide for your needs if you trust Him with all of your heart. Turn to the Lord, He is the Light of the world, He is a way maker. It may not be in a way you were expecting but God will provide enough to meet your needs.  Sometimes God uses others to bless you and at other times He may ask you to be a blessing to someone else in need.

Trust God

Psalm 31 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 31:14

But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”

 

In the worst of times you can trust in God to be with you. You can trust that He is on the throne ready to protect and defend you. By faith, leave all your troubles at the feet of the Creator. He is your God and in Him you may trust no matter what trials befall you. Turn to God because He is merciful and He loves you more than anyone ever can.
