Trusting in the Lord

 As we live in this topsy turvy world we may find it hard to trust the Lord. Are we able to trust our neighbor, family member or church leaders? Can we put our full trust in government officials and leaders? How are you doing with trusting other countries and signed political agreements? 

Diversion and anxiousness affect our mind and spirit when we take into consideration the changes that are being forced upon us at the present time. As newer believers in Christ we must change the direction of our eyes and ears. We are now being conformed into Christ's image. Our eyes should be reading God's Word and our ears listening to grounded teachers and Preachers.

The scripture clearly points us in the direction of trust. This trust is not in ourselves but in Him:

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness." Psalm 37:3

Astoundingly our disposition and attitudes take a Godly turn. When individuals have differing opinions we  can find room in our hearts to love them. Prayer is the key to staying in line with our Lord. He endows upon us His wisdom and direction. Our trust in the Word grows within us. This is a  true cultivating of the Spirit. The awesome truth is our God is changing us but He never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever!

Fears and phobias will dissipate as we trust in the Lord. Our old ways, bondages and hurts will fall away, bringing in hope, love and peace. You are becoming a better neighbor, friend, sister or brother. The world will recognize Jesus in us because we will be known by our love.

Give your heart over fully today to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His precious Word. Trust will change your heart and bring you victory!

I love what Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 4:15-18:

"For all things are for your sakes that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal."

Todays takeaways:

*Give your fears and anxieties to the Lord

*Redirect your eyes and ears

*Cultivate the Word in your heart and mind

*Trust the Lord Jesus Christ fully
