The stress in each of our lives is caused by the way we individually handle our circumstances. Psalm 37:1-3 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither …Trust in the Lord, and do good…dwell in the […]
Anxious: worried, fretful, fearful, frightened Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. The Greek language from which the translation came for “Be careful for nothing” says “In nothing be anxious.” This is a command to not worry, fret, […]
Trust: to believe, to have full confidence, to give over to another’s control; to have complete confidence in the character, ability, and truth of someone regardless of the outcome. Psalm 125:1 They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. We live in a day […]
Real faith will cause us to change our behavior. James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. A lot of people are saying they have faith but they aren’t doing what the word of God teaches.
Having patience. God works things out in his time and it is perfect. Trusting in God. Because we know he has everything under control. Having an attitude of a humble servant. If not, we will think we deserve better than we are receiving. Joseph was a marvelous example of having a servant’s attitude. Focusing on […]
How do you gain the trust of one who is frightened and mistrustful? Not by plowing in on them and expecting that they should just trust you. But by being a consistent, steady presence in their life. One that stays very near to them, calmly and quietly and shows that they are interested in them, with love.
Trust is so core to our success. Wherever it is not working we will not be moving forward. The devil has placed people to undermine your trust and if you do not know where you trust is, you will be vulnerable to it. Once trust is undermined, nothing happens. It takes real effort to work through trust that has been undermined.
On the day of Pentecost, the first spiritual revival in the New Testament, the Bible says that the followers of Christ were all with one accord- or one purpose of mind, and together in one place. But do we realize the great amount of trust and faith these had to exercise in order to be in that position to be so blessed of God? Let us remember what had taken place just prior to that time, and the circumstances they found themselves in.
When a very difficult situation or trial suddenly hits you, You will find out what you really are trusting in. You will always retreat back to a place of trust when something hits you hard. If our trust doesn’t have the right foundation, the devil can move in and undermine our trust.
“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stonger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.” Luke 11: 21-22
“I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me. In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. I call to rememberance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made a diligent search.” Psa 77:1-6
If you have ever had trust undermined, you understand what the scripture writer is talking about. He is speaking about a situation when he doesn’t know what to do. He asks, “Who do I trust?” We should commune with our own heart. We need to do some diligent searching. What does it mean to trust in God? How do you know who to trust?
