Trust God

22 March 2019
‘Trust the LORD with all your heart.’

When we step into a situation which is outside of our comfort zone, a situation which scares us, or face a battle with a struggle we have, we can be tempted to retreat. We want to run to a place of safety and avoid facing the battles. Standing on the threshold of the Promised Land, Joshua realised there were seven nations and forty kings to be conquered before he could possess it. So God told him, ‘No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you’ (Joshua 1:5 NIV). God was asking Joshua to trust Him. And He was encouraging Joshua to look back and see how steadfast He had always been with Moses. Seeing God’s faithfulness in the past, whether in our own lives or someone else’s, can help us trust Him today. The Bible says: ‘Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding’ (Proverbs 3:5 NCV). Every time we head to the office, or walk into an exam room, or job interview, we need to trust God. When we make that doctor’s appointment that we’ve been dreading, or confront a friend who has hurt us, we need to trust God. He doesn’t promise that the things we go through will be easy, but He does promise to never leave our side when we’re facing the tough times. We can be tempted to give up when the valleys are long, hard, and tiring. But if we keep going, and keep trusting God, He’ll help us reach the other side.

 

What Now?

Spend some time reflecting on God’s faithfulness to you in the past. Thank Him for those times.
