Hello. Good morning/Good afternoon/Good evening/Good night(Just go with whichever works for you) I hope you have all had a nice week so far. If you did not have a really nice week, do not worry, there are better days coming for you and just trust that God is in charge and know that He didn’t forget you. Anyway, let’s get into today’s topic. Yayy!!(It felt so weird typing this because it felt like I was a cheerleader holding a pompom-I already told y’all that i have a weird sense of humor) Just keep reading:)
What exactly is Trust?
So, according to Google, “trusting someone means that you think they are reliable, you have confidence in them and you feel safe with them physically and emotionally”. A very simple definition of trust is having firm belief in someone or something. When you trust someone, you are able to rely on them for literally everything, and you have so much confidence in them. You do not doubt them at all because of the very very firm and strong belief you have in them. Also, as seen in the definition at the beginning, when you trust someone, you feel very safe with them because you know that no matter what, they are your person and they will take care of you. To be honest, it is really hard to trust people these days because everyone has their own character and behavior but they are still some pretty trustworthy people out there.
What does the Bible say about Trust?
Just in case you are not aware of what the Bible is, the Bible is a Holy book for Christians. Anyway, in the Bible, there are so many places where trusting God is mentioned and the Bible also mentions what we get from trusting God(ps..when something is mentioned severally in the Bible, it means that it’s very important..) I am just going to choose two Bible verses that talk about trust and then explain to y’all. The first Bible verse is
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17 vs 7-8(NIV). This bible verse emphasizes on what happens to people who trust in God. Trusting in God brings you a lot of blessings and it puts you in a good place, meaning that you do not worry about anything. When you rely on God and have confidence in what He is able to do, then you are secured for life. You literally have nothing to worry about because you already know that God has your back.
The second Bible verse is Isiah 26 vs 3(NLT)-
“You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” This verse speaks on peace. It tells us that if we trust in God, He is going to bring peace into our lives. In case y’all do not understand, a peaceful mind and life is what everybody wants and is hoping for. You get that peace just by trusting in God and relying on God. You get peace of mind/ a peaceful life by having confidence in God and all His promises according to the Bible. When you have peace, you do not worry about anything, everything is going well for you and you have a great life, all these you get by putting your trust in Jesus Christ!
What I have noticed is that even for a lot of people who say they are Christians, they still do not have trust in God. They still doubt God’s powers whenever they are going through something or need something. They still do not have confidence in God and His being. A lot of people do not know this but the problem of a lot of Christians is having trust in God. A lot of people pray without trust in God and they expect their prayers to be answered when they do not have firm belief in God and are veryyyyy doubtful about God answering their prayers. How can you be doubtful about God and then ask Him for something in prayer?? I am very sure we do not ask our friends or anybody for something when we do not know or are not sure that they will do it. We only go to people we rely on to do things for us, DO THAT WITH GOD!!
In short, we all need to do better with trusting God. The thing is that God sees everything that is happening to you, He sees everything you are going through, He just wants to see that you believe that He knows about your situation. He just wants to see how much confident you are about Him coming through for you and helping you out. Trusting in God is very very important and that is what God needs from you. We all need to stop expecting things from God when we do not even have firm belief in Him, His powers, and His promises. Just stop doubting God and put full trust in Him.*drops mic* Bye🤗🤗
