Helps for Trusting God II

As believers we are called to Trust God. For some of us it's not always easy, especially during hard times where His will isn't immediately evident. No matter where you are in your walk with God, we should remember that His will is perfect! This week we asked the staff in the Online Communities office to share their tips for trusting God.  

From William

“I try to put things back into perspective. I may be stressing about something relatively minuscule like a presentation or finances. While those things are important to us at the time, they are not too much for God to handle. Logically, I figure if God is able to part seas, hydrate His people through rocks, make food fall out of the sky and raise people from the dead, surely I can trust Him to help me through a presentation to my peers. Knowing that we are literally His prize possessions on this planet empowers me to do whatever and push through the fear.”

From Jade

“Thinking about it, worrying about it, talking about it… Is not the same as praying about it.” Sometimes I remind myself of this quote because it’s easy to get caught up in “thinking, worrying, talking” and I wonder why God isn’t intervening for me. In reality I haven’t given that fear, worry doubt over to him.”

From Ted

“Do not go through the struggle alone.  Talk with a mature Christian as advised in Proverbs 19:20, “Listen to counsel and accept discipline, that you may be wise the rest of your days.” 

 Characteristics of a mature Christian: 

  1. Reads and applies the Word of God 
  2. Cares for the body of Christ 
  3. Desires to point others to Jesus Christ 
  4. Demonstrates the fruits of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (see Galatians 5:22-23)”

From Mike

“View trials as an opportunity to persevere (James 1:2-4).  Jesus experienced trials on earth."

Do you have any tips for trusting God? Leave them in the comments below.
