Have you ever realized that the more you proclaim and believe a specific word for your life, the harder you are fought?
I have decided to take the “Trusting God” challenge. It sounds really important, however it is something that I made up myself.
Here’s the “Trusting God” vision statement.
Instead of worrying, I believe. Instead of becoming frustrated, I rejoice. And when it looks hopeless, I hold on a little longer.
I’ve spoken these things over my life the last several mornings. I say, God, I know the situation looks this way, but I’m believing you’re turning it around.
On a certain day I prayed, I read the word but I didn’t fully “give it all to God”. I held on to the worry.
I found myself having one of those, “self-pity” moments. I was getting our car worked on, and as if that isn’t stress enough, I found myself starting to cry. Yes… The dreaded female melt down!
I quickly made my way to the restroom and locked myself in the stall. I wanted to feel peace, to feel safe.
There I found myself quoting the scripture that I studied earlier that morning.
Psalm 91:2 “I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”
*What exactly is a refuge?
It’s being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger, or trouble.
It had felt as if the enemy was on strong pursuit of my faith. I become overwhelmed to the point of breaking. But I’m so thankful for the refuge I have in God.
I didn’t feel safe until I took shelter in Him!
I still declare to trust HIM with my future, my family, finances, ministry and our nation.
Still believing that He will accomplish the good work that He has started.
I want to ask you, do you have trouble fully trusting God to handle everything?
I do… We tend to create idols and manipulate situations to make them turn out the way we think they should.
Lets look at Sarah…
If she had fully Trusted God to do what he already said he would do, she wouldn’t have created the mess that we’re still paying for today.
Let’s be “God trusting” Women and Men! Let’s leave a path of faith for our children and Grand Children to follow!!!
Will you take the “Trusting God” challenge?
If yes, then Speak this verse over your life every morning.
*The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge and trust in Him. Nahum 1:7
God knows those who feel safe enough to fully put all trust in him!
Leave your comments here and tell me how you take refuge in Him.
What are you laying down in order for God to have his rightful place In your life?
How is it changing you, changing your family and changing the world?
Together- We can!
