God Can Be Trusted!

The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes. Deuteronomy 1:30

Life gets tough but we can handle it. We do not run and hide when things get tough. We can face adversity head on when we have Christ. The truth is that challenges facilitate growth. I'll be the first to tell you that I do not like to go through adversity but I know that my challenges have been instrumental in my Christian Walk. I learn at a very early age that I perform best under pressure. My hardships have kept me in check and at God's feet and I now see them as opportunity to see the glory of God but it wasn't always the case.

There are stages in walking with God and I was just teaching that lesson to my niece earlier. When walking with God we will know his ways and his heart, but when we only go to him when we have a need we will never know his heart. We are not entitled to anything. God gives us by grace. We have to spend time with God. We have to enjoy the relationship with him. Our priority should be the relationship and not the advantages that it brings. It is only by staying near God that we will get to know Him. As he takes us from victory to victory our faith gets strengthened and we no longer panic every time we get a telephone call or every time the doctor open his mouth. I have learned a long time ago that it is easier to trust God than to worry. I had a taste of that peace that surpassed all understanding and I wanted it to be a lifestyle. You too can do it. You can decide to trust God no matter what you hear and no matter what you see. You can put your flesh under control. Say "Flesh, I will trust the Lord. I will not worry. God will see me through this as well. the blood of Christ gives me victory over sickness, disease, lack and curse"

God has been taking care of His children since day one. Why wouldn't trust Him? He took his people out of Egypt. He saved some out bondage. He delivered one out of the lion's den. He saved others from the furnace. he can be trusted. His record speaks for itself. Friend, learn to trust God and be blessed!

Praise the Lord!
