The Holy Spirit blessed me one day when He brought to my attention two Bible verses from different parts of the Bible that when combined bear a powerful lesson on trusting God!
The Lord Jesus Christ calls us to trust Him ALL THE TIME – with ALL OUR HEARTS.
Truth is I fall so short in this each and every day!
But I do not believe God wants us to be discouraged and to condemn ourselves for not trusting Him completely and continually.
The fact God speaks of trusting Him over and again throughout the Bible makes clear He knows we in our humanness fall short in this and that we need His help, correction, teaching, training, testing, encouragement, and ongoing reminders – to trust Him ALL THE TIME WITH ALL OUR HEARTS!
Let us not beat ourselves up for not trusting God perfectly in this way. Instead let us pray to God for help with this! Let us read our Bibles regularly which will help us develop our faith in Him and relationship with Him and our obedience to Him!
And let us desire and dedicate ourselves daily to growing in trusting the Lord COMPLETELY AND ONGOINGLY! Amen!
Oh, Lord, help us to trust you dear Father! In the name of Jesus, help us to grow in our faith in you, oh Lord! Help us to learn to trust you humbly, wholly, and forevermore! Amen! Amen! Amen!
“Trust in Him at all times, you people;…” Psalms 62:8 NKJV
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,…” Proverbs 3:5 NKJV
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17 NKJV
