Daily Devotional – 11/10/14 “Trust God!”

Isn’t it amazing how we can put our trust in just about anything and anybody but we second guess God, question His reasoning, think twice before stepping out or close the door all together before going where He sends us when He has never steered us wrong? We sit down in a chair without a thought on whether it will give out yet we don’t trust God as our foundation when concrete will crack yet He won’t. We will drink milk past the expiration date yet we won’t fill up on God’s word when the bible says in John 4:14, “But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” You trust your insurance to cover you, until you use too much and it either cost you more than you can afford or your coverage lapse but God is there covering every part of your life without fail yet your trust waivers in Him. You trust man who lets you down because flesh can sometime fail us yet you won’t give God the same respect. What gives? You trust the bank but not Jehovah Jireh (provider). You trust the doctor but not Jehovah Rapha (healer). You’d rather trust your carnal mind to fight battles you can’t win than Jehovah Nissi (banner).

What is it going to take for you to trust God? He’s proven Himself to be worthy. His resume speaks for itself. You don’t have to keep wondering why your way is dark, it’s because you won’t trust God to be the oil for the lamp to light your path. You keep falling because your faith is failing. You’re leaning because you’ve yet to learn this life’s lesson (and you only get one). You’re stumbling because your sight is set on seeking the shady stuff. You’re missing the mark because you’re magnifying minor mess. And your talent is tainted because you’re tarrying in trouble when God is asking, “Oh ye of little faith why do you doubt?” Psalm 37:3-7 says, “Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. All you have to do is trust God. You don’t have to see your way out of the situation but trust God enough to know that He’ll make the way. You don’t have to know where the money will come from but trust God enough to know that He’ll provide! Because He will!
