One day a retired lady in her late 60’s came to visit with me. She talked about everything she was going through in her life. She had been a woman always “in control,” but now God was facing her with learning to trust Him completely.
One of the most beautiful words in our Christian vocabulary is “TRUST.”
We use it in relation to our fellow man. We use it in relation to our possessions. We use it in relation to our faith in Jesus Christ.
Webster defines the word as meaning: a firm belief in the honesty and reliability of another.
In the Gospels we read of the time when mothers brought their young children to Jesus to bless. The disciples were agitated by this time-consuming activity. But Jesus told them to let the little children come. And He further said that unless we all become as little children, we cannot enter the Kingdom of God (Mark 10:13-14).
What is the principal here?
Just simple TRUST.
Children have an innate trust in the adults of their life unless that trust has been marred by cruel actions. My prayer is, “Lord, help me to trust You in everything, no matter what the circumstance.”
Getting the Word into your mind and spirit will help. With God nothing is impossible! He has never failed! Sure cuts down on the worry!
