Inspiration from Jacki Kash
How are you when it comes to trusting God in the midst of a storm?
I have finally figured out that really trusting God commands rest. Have you ever been in a situation where you really needed something and didn't know how you were going to get it? How did you respond?
Have you ever faced tough times where you didn't know how your needs would be met? I have. Before I began to study and do the word of God, my response to these situations was to panic. I would wake up full of fear and allow myy thoughts to be dominated by thoughts of despair. I did the opposite of what His word said. I wanted to have faith, but what I was going through caused me to be fearful. However, faith and fear cannot co-exist, but faith in God's word will banish fear.
During seemingly hopeless situations, God has come through for me. Even in the midst of unfamiliar territory, I've learned that He is faithful to His word. As I see miracles performed in my own life, I develop more confidence in God's word.
When you walk upright before God, He will honor His word. Our job is to trust Him, not to try to figure out how He is going to come through, but to trust that when He promises something, He will also do it (Isaiah 46:11).
This blog comes from personal experience, not from what I've heard about. Therefore, I can say with confidence that no matter how situations look, we have the ability to walk by faith and not by sight. And remember, what you see is subject to change.
When you begin to trust in God, you will experience growth. When you become skilled at trusting God, you begin to declare His word more in the midst of difficult circumstances. When you begin to gain victory over battles, you learn to trust God more, which in turn develops your confidence that He will do what He has spoken and what He purposed, He will bring to pass.
The moral is, trust commands rest. Are you resting? And if not, are you truly trusting?
