When we understand how God interacts with us, our lives are transformed. We are able to see what God is doing in us, and what He is doing through us. And we no longer confuse the two. We’re able to spend time in His presence receiving revelation, guidance and love. But this is not usually […]
To trust in God means that He is our confidence; our minds are at rest, as we rely on His word, His integrity, His veracity, His faithfulness, and His unfailing love.
We don’t often hear stories about King Hezekiah, but he is one of my favorite examples of trusting in God. II Kings 18:5, says that Hezekiah trusted God like no other king before or after him.. What a wonderful way to be remembered, as someone who truly trusted in God. In the face of danger, at the threat of war from Sennacherib, king of Assyria, and even after the prophet Isaiah warned him that he would soon die, Hezekiah prayed to God, trusted Him to hear and answer, and God delivered him every time!
King Hezekiah’s sincere, unshakable, trust in God, serves as a great encouragement and example for us today, as we face life’s trials and difficulties. Like him, we too can be assured, that God cares, He hears our prayers,He sees our tears, and will not fail to deliver us, as we place our trust in Him.
“In the world ye shall have tribulation…”
“But the God of all grace, Who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus,
after that ye have suffered a while,
He Himself will restore, establish, strengthen, settle you.”
John 16:33 and I Peter 5:10
“Circumstances are not the barometer of God’s love and goodness – the cross is.”
“Do you feel as though God isn’t answering your prayers? Are you tempted to doubt His love and goodness?
When I feel this way, I have to remind myself that my circumstances aren’t the barometer of God’s love and goodness—the cross is. He has shown His love and how good He is by giving His only Son Jesus to die for our sin. We can’t rely on our feelings. But day by day as we choose to trust Him more, we learn to believe with confidence that God is good—all the time.”♥
Jesus, You’re the center of my joy
All that’s good and perfect comes from You!
You’re the heart of my contentment.
Hope for all I do.
Jesus, You’re the center of my joy.
“For God has said…
I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.
Love lifted me. Love lifted me.
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me!
