Deuteronomy 33:27 New International Version (NIV)
27 The eternal God is your refuge,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.
He will drive out your enemies before you,
saying, ‘Destroy them!’
Sheltered within the arms of Jesus. I remember when I was younger, how people would say trust me. I would learn the beginning of trust and the hard knocks of who not to trust. Not everybody who says, "trust me" is to be trusted. I've learned to lean on God and I do trust him through it all.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
We have started a new study at my church on the 7 Ingredients of the Early Church. The first message was on trust was from our Pastor. It begins in Acts 1:12-17 and you can read that when you have time.
Trust in God fights and trust in God secures:
The ingredient of Trust in God fights:
5. Anger (Resentment)
The Ingredient of Trust in God secures:
Each day of our lives we learn in different ways. We learn who to trust and who know to trust. God is able to keep us, as our minds stay on him. He is able to guide our lives with yes from us. To jump into the Father's arms of catching us. Nothing is too big for God and trusting God is so important.
I often think of the trust of a child. I can open my arms and tell my granddaughter (Willow) to jump and she will. She knows she can trust I will catch her. I know that's how God see's us. He knows there are times when we just need to jump and he is ready. It is not the physical jump but that spiritual jump and trust in him beyond limits.
Matthew 18:2-4 New International Version (NIV)2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
