Trusting God - Seven Days of Scripture Writing

Have you ever dealt with not trusting God? This post is for you {and me}!

Of all the let downs we’ve had in our lives, God is the only one who has not let us down. His timing and answers may not be what we want, but he always has our best interest in mind.

Trusting God - Seven Days of Scripture Writing

Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines Trust as Confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person. He or that which is the ground of confidence.

If we can put trust in others who are imperfect and not put our trust in God who is perfect and will not fail us, we have a major problem. God’s integrity and justice are in a class all their own, why not have confidence and trust in him?

I love this quote by Ernest Hemingway -

The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.

You know the slogan Just Do It. The only way we can trust in God is to just do it. Trust he will provide. Trust he will give protection.  Trust he will heal. Trust he will answer those prayers.

I know there are times when it is easier said than done. I’ve experienced those times, and it’s not easy. But once you get over the first hurdle keeping you from trusting, it becomes easier.

Recently, I started writing out verses to help me focus more with trusting God. The effects of climbing over the hurdle that was keeping me from experiencing all I can was amazing. I found writing those verses kept them in my heart longer than just reading them.
