The Best Way Of Learning About Anything Is By Doing.
Trust God for Inspiration
What does it mean to trust God?
Even in spite of those things, trusting God means you continue to turn to Him, and away from the naysayers – you keep praying, even when those prayers seem to have absolutely no effect – you keep saying, like Job: The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away.
Life is not predictable. There are ups and downs along the way. Many of us want to trust God. When times are good, it can feel easier. But when times feel difficult, it is even more important to trust God. God’s unchanging character can give us a firm foundation when things feel unsteady and uncertain.
To trust is to believe in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of something. Trusting God is simply believing that He loves you and knowing He’s good, He has the power to help you, and He wants to help you.
Trusting God When Life Is Super Hard
Let me brutally honest: when the stuff hits the fan, trusting God becomes really hard. Some people think that “believing in” God entitles them to a problem-free life, and if they have problems, that must mean they don’t have enough faith or something. But the Bible contradicts this idea. People today prefer to think that they are their own gods, bearing total responsibility for their life, which, in the sense that they have the power to choose how they respond to situations, they do.
Sometimes it’s hard to trust God. But in the end, it’s better to make smart choices even if you look stupid, than to make stupid choices that make you look smart. Just as gold must go through fire before becoming refined to its most beautiful state, so must we go through trials to become refined like Him.
Even in spite of those things, trusting God means you continue to turn to Him, and away from the naysayers — you keep praying, even when those prayers seem to have absolutely no effect — you keep saying, like Job: The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
Just speak, trusting God will hear you. Pray for his comfort and strength, rather than praying that he’d simply remove difficulties. You will grow in faith and courage if you pray this way.
