Intro: One of the most difficult things to do in our current society is to relinquish our control to someone else and depend totally on that person to lead and guide us. The Word of God let’s us know that we need to learn to wait on the Lord and to trust Him. Like a lot of things connected to our Christian faith, it’s a lot easier to say than it is to do, because waiting involves trusting. And trust is a scarce commodity in the world today! One of the great verses of the bible is where the Proverb writer, says TRUST IN THE LORD… So here are four reasons why you should trust in God:
He’s Conscious- This means He’s aware. That either ought to scare you to death or comfort you greatly! The world wants you to think God is detached & un-interested. The word of God say’s in Matt 6:8 that our Heavenly Father knows what things we have need of even before we ask Him. Isn’t it good to know that we have a God that is omniscient or all knowing? That’s the first reason why you should trust Him, because He already knows everything about you.
He’s Concerned- People in this world just don’t care, ever been around someone like that? That’s why Christians ought to be the most caring people on earth, (People don’t care how much you know until they first know how much you care!)1 Peter 5:7 says cast, which means to throw, your cares, anxieties and worries on Him because He cares about you. Yes, He cares about you! Whatever concerns you concerns Him. So, whenever you’re faced with problems, situations and obstacles that seem insurmountable just throw them on Him, He can handle them.
He’s Consistent- This means He’s faithful and you can also count on Him and trust Him to do exactly what He say’s He will do every single time, even if others let you down and or found to be unreliable God will never let you down, you can always rely on Him. The Hebrew writer says in Heb. 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever.”
He’s Capable- Eph 3:20 say’s that God is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all that we could ask or think according to the power that He works in us. This would suggest to us that nothing is too hard for God. Even if He chooses not to grant our request, He’s still capable of supplying our every need. Sometimes God says NO!
Conclusion; If you’ve been relying on yourself as well as others, and not depending totally on the Lord to meet your needs, I admonish you today to trust Him completely. The word of God let’s us know that without faith it is impossible to please God. (Heb 11:6)
