Trust God: It is easy to lift our complaints to God when things seem to fall apart. Why do I have to suffer? Why won’t God answer my prayers and punish the ungodly?
I am sick and tired of this situation. How long will this last? God, could you please hurry up and fix it?
King David would always turned to the Lord in times of adversity, trust God would hear him and answer his prayers because of His unending mercy
In – Psalm 4:1 (Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness)
3 Steps to Trust in the Lord
- Don’t Depend on Yourself
We live in a world where trust must be earned, because most of us have faced disappointments, which have taught us that we can only depend upon ourselves
It was king Solomon, writing Proverbs, he knew that trust is exactly where we must start:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5)
God wants us to rest in God’s understanding.
- Pray to God
Surrendering to God begins with our lips and our thoughts. We need pray to Him to show that dependence.
“in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:6)
When we pray, we admit that His ways are higher than our ways.
“Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.” (Psalm 55:17)
- Run from Evil
There are so much in this world that can mess up our relationship with God.
John described them as the desires of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride in our lives (1 John 2:16).
In other words, our blessings can easily become our stumbling blocks
Instead, life works best when we remember the true source of our blessings—God—and focus on the things that please Him:
“Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.” (Proverbs 3:7)
