There is a thought pattern in this world that God is all knowing and all powerful why would he want to take time for me. Or that God is up in heaven controlling us like puppets getting his excitement from the things we go through. That he doesn’t care a lick about what is really happening in our lives, like the gods of old who were in their realms throwing extravagant parties and fighting their wars at our expense.
This is a lie of the enemy who wants us to avoid at all costs a true relationship with God the creator. He wants and has blinded the eyes of the unbeliever from the experience of knowing God intimately. But that’s not the God we read about in the bible. The God of the bible from the moment He created mankind he wanted to have a relationship with them. He doesn’t physically walk with us in the garden like he did with Adam and Eve, but he wants to walk with us through our prayers, reading the bible and obedience.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
Trust God seems like such an easy concept. But if you’re like me trusting God is a conscientious battle in doing it myself. When I try to do things, myself it is like I am watching a trailer. I think I know what is going on, but I don’t know it all. God on the other hand already has seen the whole movie. He knows that it will all work out and how. But in my assumptions, resistance and doubt I forget to trust him. This puts me in dangerous waters as I stray away from where I need to be, which is in the will of God.
It’s really hard to trust God when you’re at a dead end. It seems like there is no path to take, or the paths you can take seem wrong. Trusting God in these moments can be nerve racking. I feel I am in such a place. But I keep praying that God will show me the path to take.
It is even harder to trust God when the lies you have been told about Him keep coming to the forefront of your mind.
If you are feeling low and discouraged, I pray today that you will put your trust back in the one who has seen your life movie and won’t send you down a wrong path if you trust him. If today you have never experienced the relationship you can have with the Creator it is not to late. God sent His Son Jesus into the world to die and rise again so that we can have the relationship He always wanted.
Dear Jesus, I trust you are watching and working in my life. I lay my life at your feet, surrendering my all to you. Show me the path I am to take. Help me to take the path you provide. I accept that Jesus you died on the cross, rose again and that you sacrifice was for me, that by doing this I can surrender to you and have a relationship with God the Father. Amen
