Last week during Bible study at Edgewood, we got into a discussion about what it means to trust God.And what it means to NOT trust Him. * While it may be true that You created the entire universe, I don't really believe You're big enough to handle my current circumstance. * I know You can raise the dead to life, but I don't know if You can truly restore this broken relationship. * Yes, You are perfect in wisdom. However, I'm not sure You know what You're doing in my life today. * OK, so You promise to work all things for good, but I don't see how this situation is really in my best interest. * I don't believe You are able. * I have zero confidence in Your power. * I don't think You are all-knowing, after all. When we are in the midst of the struggle, I know we may feel these things. Believe me, I've been there!Yet, when I look at those feelings in words I think, I would never say that! But as we discussed it together last week we concluded, when we aren't trusting God - those are the words we're saying. With our hearts. So I am continuing to line my feelings up with the Truth.
The LORD is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid?The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?Psalm 27:1Because if that is True, I can have full confidence in verse 2:
When evil people come to devour me,when my enemies and my foes attack me,they will stumble and fall.Do your feelings need to meet the Truth today?
