                                                        Trusting God with the impossible!

                                                        

There is a real joy that comes with completely trusting in the truth of God’s word.  The problems of this world are too much for us to bear and unless our hope is grounded in the unfailing love of God there is no real peace.  It doesn’t matter what your socio-economic standing is, trouble finds us all.  The rain falls on the poor as well as the rich.  Sickness, disease and death have no barriers.  The only foundation that stands firm is for those who put their trust in Christ.  We read in 2 Peter 9 that the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and Psalm 32:10 says, “… the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him”.   The only strength that we have in this world comes from God.   God’s word says in Proverbs 28 that he who trusts in himself is a fool.

 

So what do we do when we find ourselves in a painful trial or struggle?  My friends, we should do what we read God’s people did in Scripture when they faced trouble.  In 2 Chronicles, King Jehoshaphat heard that armies were coming against his people from two sides.  The Israelites did not have the power on their own to stand up to these armies so they turned to their only strength as they stood trusting before the Lord.  King Jehoshaphat cried out to God saying ,“We have no power to fact this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you”. The Israelites were saved that day and their enemies were destroyed.

 

The greatest honor you can give to God is to trust him when all seems lost.  It was God who sent his only Son, Jesus, to come into this world and die for us so that we may have eternal life.  Jesus suffered for us knowing that he would be rejected by many.  Is there any greater love then that?  He has also promised to never leave us alone.  Many people are trying to carry the burdens of this life by themselves.  That was never God’s plan.  He knew there would be troubles in this world but he also knew that he would help us through them.  Jesus says in Matthew 11:29, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest”.  To those who call on his name, he will lift you up and give you his peace that surpasses understanding. 

 

God already has his people praying for those who are hurting and who feel alone.  If you can trust him, God will send someone into your life to help you through your hopeless situation.  The most wonderful thing about this is that God offers his love to all.  It is his will that none should perish.  Jesus says in John 10:10  “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”.

 

Jesus cares about everything that touches us in our lives.  He wants to give us a life of joy that that the thief cannot steal, kill and destroy.  In Deuteronomy,30:19, God tells the people, “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life.”  The choice is yours.

 

Receive the gift of a full life that God has for you now as you ask Christ to reveal himself and come into your heart. It will not only change your life, it will change your eternity!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ. It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
