Practice TRUST

I feel like we live in a culture that asks "Tell me why" or we are all encouraged to "know our WHY," which I think has it's place, but it must never replace our "whys" with our "Trust" I don't always need to know why, but I do always need to practice my trust. I would love to write a book called, "What is your trust?" Instead of what's your why. Sometimes we don't get the "why" conveniently served to us. Then and at that point, what do we do? If we are not careful, we will forget to trust; we may forget that powerful and age-old virtue of "TRUST". Could it be true that we can be strong in our "why" but weak in our "trust"? Let's never forget to trust even if we don't know all the ends and outs of it all. Let's be strong in our trust. Trust.

Practice Trust

There is a time to know why, but never to get addicted to it as if we are entitled to know why when we don't understand, or in every time God gives us a direction. If we did, we would never need to practice trust, and practice makes better. If we have not practiced the virtue of trust then we need to take a step back and evaluate our trust, and ask, "What are we trusting in?" Our trust is our power and our righteousness. For in God we will trust. "in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me?" Psalm 56:11  Because "Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you."  Psalm 9:10

When we don't practice trust, we lose our strength in trust and always need an explanation or we rebel. No! We will NOT live that way! We will trust in the name of the Lord our God! For Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will TRUST in the name of the LORD our God (Psalm 20:7)

When we always need to know "why," then I encourage us, let's check our trust. Is it God we are trusting or is it in ourselves, our riches, and our own wisdom? Let's pray that we look at our trust and make sure that we trust in the Lord with all our heart, and lean not on our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledging Him and trusting that He will make all our paths straight! (Proverbs 5:6,7)

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
