“Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:8

Someone needs to be encouraged to just TRUST GOD.  Brethren we are living in a time when the enemy is roaring and the weapons are being formed on the left and on the right.  Yet in the midst of it all, God wants us to just trust Him.  No matter how things might look for you right now, still trust God.

Do not allow the circumstances that you now face dictate your life.  Whatever the challenge is take it to the Lord in prayer and stand in faith and believe Him to be who He is.  He is not I was or I will be, He is the Great I AM.  I Am is always present.

It may seem to you that God is just not there but He is.  He is with you and He knows and He sees.  God is waiting on you to begin to praise Him and thank Him for just working things out on your behalf.  Yes, God knows what is in our hearts and thoughts but have you taken your situation to Him in prayer?  You are pondering so many things in your heart; talk to God about them and then listen to Him as He speaks to you in the way He wants to.

The promises of God to us are sure.  We can depend on God to come through for us no matter what we face, as long as we have faith in Him.  Do not look back, do not turn back, press forward in the Lord.  You may feel as if you are going under but hold on to the hands of God and allow Him to lift you up and take you through.

So your spouse is ‘acting up’, TRUST GOD.  So your children are walking in darkness, TRUST GOD.  So your work environment is like a war zone, TRUST GOD.  So you are down to your last dime and your bills are overdue, TRUST GOD.  So you are sick in your body and you have spent just about all you have on medical treatment and doctors; yet cannot get a diagnosis, TRUST GOD.  So a family member is very sick and the doctors say they do not have long to live, TRUST GOD.
So the bank turned down your loan application, TRUST GOD.  So your children are going back to college and you do not know where their tuition is coming from, TRUST GOD.  So your church brethren are slandering your name, TRUST GOD.

Friends and family might have turned against you, TRUST GOD!  “In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.”  Psalm 56:11  So you thought that 2010 would be an easier year for you and you are faced with seemingly more challenges than 2009, TRUST GOD.  The shaking has begun but in the midst of the spiritual and physical shaking, TRUST GOD!  Beloved in Christ TRUST GOD, TRUST GOD, TRUST GOD!

Do not allow the challenges to blind you to what the Lord is doing or deafen you to what He is saying.  God is now pouring out of His Holy Spirit in a mighty way.  The trick is, the enemy is trying to get us distracted, get our eyes off what God is doing and to focus on him.  Do not give in to him.  “Neither give place to the devil.”

Ephesians 4:27  “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” 1 Peter 5:8-10

God wants you to trust Him.  He wants you to cast all your cares on Him and to know this day that He is not just good but that He is God.  He wants to remind you of His faithfulness.  He wants to remind you of His covenant and His love for you.  He wants to remind you of His promises to you.  He wants you to know that He cares for you.  He wants to remind you today that it is ok for you to trust Him totally today.

Whatever you face today, stop, pray and remember to trust God.  Do not be anxious, do not fret.  Do not worry, do not get frustrated, just trust God.  “As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.” Psalm 18:30

Saints of God let us TRUST GOD!
