Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday and welcome today, to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I pray that your day is going well and that you will truly feel the presence of God…walking close beside you throughout the day!
Today, my thoughts have been on the word “trust.” I’m sure that we all deal with a lack of trust…due to something that has happened in our lives. For me, I’ve had problems trusting people all my life because it seemed that every time I trusted someone…it was only followed by a deep embedded pain, within the heart.
When I grew up, I thought that my grandparents were the ones that I could trust completely…that is until my grandfather molested me. From there, I thought I could trust my parents love, until that became a dysfunctional mess. Then there were boyfriends, who said that they would never hurt me and that was only for a short time, before they did hurt me.
You know…we all have issues of trust…to some degree but what really puzzles me; is why do we put so much effort, into trusting people? I will never forget the moment, when it was as though my eyes…mind and heart were completely opened by God. It was as if He was saying to me… “Diane, why do you feel the need to trust man, when I am the only One you need to put your trust in?” This moment actually became a “wow factor” in my life and ever since that moment, I have found life to be much easier…just by trusting God alone.
As I’ve been sitting here today…thinking on what God has placed upon my heart to write; I came across a Bible verse in Jeremiah 17:5, which reads… “Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.
Do we realize today; that when we lean on man and attempt to place our trust in a person; that these are the moments that make us distant from God? Today, we need to place our trust in a God, who can accomplish everything we need in this life and if we are working hard to trust in man, rather than God; then we are missing out, on what God can truly do for us…just by simply trusting Him.
There is one thing that has truly brought peace and contentment into my life and that is just knowing that I only have to trust God and Him alone. I no longer feel the need to trust in many people…only One God…the God that can truly be everything, for everything I need.
So let me ask you a question, as I close this writing. Are you totally drained, from feeling the need to trust in people who have let you down? Why not simply put your trust in a God, who will never let you down; but will always be the One to lift you up. I have come to see that life is less complicated, when I turn my trust, in the direction of a God, who will never fail me…hurt me…or forsake me.
No matter what you are experiencing in life right now; just know that God can be trusted. He will hold you close and take care of everything in your life…that is, if you are willing to let go of everyone and everything, except for Him.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
