Trusting God

Throughout Scripture, God continually encourages us to rely on him like a child relies on a parent. Some of us may have lost the ability to trust because our parents never provided adequately for our needs, while others of us may have lost our ability to trust through circumstances- a failed job, death of a loved one, a lost desire. But God has revealed time and again that he can help us relearn that childlike faith if we let him. It's a matter of cultivating a relationship with him and letting him show himself faithful as he works good out of our circumstances. Close your eyes and picture yourself resting your head on Jesus' chest. Can you hear his heart beating with love for you?

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust God because...
God blesses those who trust him. Psalm 143:8
God cares for those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7
Trusting God brings joy, peace, and hope. Romans 15:13
