Trusting in Me is a moment-by-moment choice. You trust me when things go well, when you see Me working on your behalf. This type of trust flows readily from you, requiring no exertion from you at all. When things go wrong, you r trust-flow slows down and solidifies. You are forced to choose between trusting Me intentionally or rebelling: resenting My ways with you. This choice constitutes a fork in the road. Stay on the path of Life with e enjoying My Presence. Choose to trust Me in all circumstances.
Exodus 15:22-25 – 22 Then Moses led the people of Israel away from the Red Sea, and they moved out into the desert of Shur. They traveled in this desert for three days without finding any water. 23 When they came to the oasis of Marah, the water was too bitter to drink. So they called the place Marah (which means “bitter”).24 Then the people complained and turned against Moses. “What are we going to drink?” they demanded. 25 So Moses cried out to the Lord for help, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. Moses threw it into the water, and this made the water good to drink.It was there at Marah that the Lord set before them the following decree as a standard to test their faithfulness to him.
Psalm 31:14 – But I am trusting in you, Oh Lord, Saying you are my God.
My trust in God should not rely on my circumstances. If God is ever faithful, then He is to be trusted in all areas, regardless of my circumstances. Thais is VERY tough to do when things are collapsiong all around you. Sometimes it feel s weird to even go to the trust part of your mind. It feels like you are not being honest with yourself, and that there is no way that it will work. This is where God is. We are so used to letting our circumstances rule our thoungts that it sees unnatural to allow God into the scene.
The more we allow God in, the more faith continues to grow in our liives untill our mind is renewed. Trusting in God takes faith, and an ability to look beyond the physical. It takes courage, a lot of courage.
Renew my heart today, God. I desire you above everything else.
