Trusting God is A Choice

Make the Decision to Trust God

Our Father is, hands down, the best candidate in whom we should place our total trust. He is so powerful that this world cannot contain Him, He knows all, sees all, and time is in His hands. Everything is subject to His command, and He is everywhere. This is the God we serve. With this said, why would we NOT place our total trust in Him?

Grant it, in these days and times there is much that could so easily cause us to worry and become fretful, but we must place things in perspective. Worry is unfruitful. It does nothing more than cause us stress, and stress leads to sickness. I had to remind myself of this truth just recently. Life seemed to be issuing me one thing after another with which to concern myself. Everything from worrying about a loved-one, to trying to figure out the best food to serve my 4 year-old who needs a special diet due to allergies. My list was long, and for weeks I worried and prayed, then worried again until one day I had time to truly slow down. It was then that I realized I hadn’t made the decision to TRUST. It’s one thing to pray, but it’s another thing all together to TRUST that when you pray the Lord hears and He IS working on your behalf.

“Well, what do you do when it seems God is silent and His work on our behalf appears little to none?” you might ask. We have to trust Him when what we see doesn’t line up with what He has said. Even when it looks like time is running out, we must trust that He will come through. In the moments when, according to our time frame, He’s already late, we must trust that His time to move for us is actually ON TIME.

It really is quite a mature thing to do, to trust that God is moving even when we don’t see the evidence. What makes this doable is the fact that God’s word simply cannot fail. He’s told us in His Word that His plans for us are for good and not evil, and that He will never leave nor forsake us.

Remember, trusting Jesus doesn’t mean that we are not concerned. Quite the contrary, we are concerned, and so we take it to Jesus and trust that He is working it out for us. Take advantage of the savior’s invitation to literally cast ALL of your cares upon Him, because He cares for us, and make the decision to trust Him!
