” I float through life like a leaf on a river, because I put my trust in God”
To every person God is different. For some people there is no God given that they don’t believe. However for believers there definitely is a God and that God has a different meaning to every single individual. There are so many religions out there but the one focal point of all these religions is God and more importantly believing and trusting in God. To trust in God is a fulfilling thing for believers because they believe in God so they know their trust is well placed. You cannot trust in something you don’t have faith in, so so that you can trust you have to be in a position to believe first. Many people out there continue to be looking for God. Others consider themselves Christians but they aren’t fully convinced that God exists. Now one must wonder what could very well come from putting your trust in something you do not firmly believe in – nothing. (Hebrews 11:6 NIV) And without faith it really is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must think that he exists and that he rewards people who earnestly seek him.
Many times, it happens that certain comes to a point in their lives where one has experienced lots of different things, some good some bad, and thru this experience one comes to actually know one’s self and understand that through knowing ones self one actually involves know God. For many this process doesn’t take as long, but I feel that God includes a purpose for some of us taking longer to find him than others, almost like a mission that we must complete before we have been equipped enough to know God.
(John 15:5-6 NIV) “I am the vine; you are the branches. In case a man remains in me and that i in him, he will bear much fruit; aside from me you can do nothing. 6 If someone will not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned
Once we get to the point where we fully Relax God Is Working we can give over our full trust to him and have faith in him to lead us through the path in our life, while trusting that whatever happens does so for a greater purpose than we understand as the reigns have been in Gods hands. Through giving our trust to God fully we can attend peace to make peace with a lot of current and previous conflicts in our lives, because we have that great trust in God we instantly become relieved of they constant burdens we felt constantly once we were seeking to handle and control everything ourselves. It is not possible for any person to stay in control over everything constantly that is what God will there be for to relieve our burdens when we would just be able to know him and let him be there for people.
“Trust within the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and prey on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also inside the Lord, And He shall supply you with the desires of your own heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And Then He shall take it to move. He shall bring forth your righteousness since the light, Along with your justice as the noonday. Rest inside the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Usually do not fret as a result of him who prospers within his way, Due to the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret — it only causes harm” (Psalm 37:3-8).
Our company is so quick to evaluate other different religions to the own; instead this energy and time could be spent getting our very own bond with God to grow. We quite often know hardly any, to nothing about other religions yet we believe that we can judge and quite often hate them. This may not be what god is centered on, and yet every religion that people criticize are in their way are worshipping God and putting their trust in God and letting him lighten their burden. We should too spend our time in this way rather than being judgmental of others which only serves to help make our personal lives more petty and miserable. We should instead take more time looking at ourselves and looking to God believing in and trusting God to help carry our burdens and teaching us to love others while we love ourselves. We frequently don’t realize just how much easier and happier our way of life may be when we were to just trust in God.
We in the 21st century have come to count on and trust in so many things, which we have arrived at do without even thinking. We get in our car and trust it to take us to where we want to go. We get into elevators and trust that they will take us where we must do without any problems, the same goes for airplanes, trains, boats, buses and so on…
Sometimes we have to undergo an operation, where we might die, yet we trust the doctor to use on us and that we hope for the best. Now since we can so easily put our trust in most these trivial everyday things, why do we have now this type of hard time believing in God and giving him our trust? God is greater and much more powerful and all of knowing than anything else we put our trust in. Just browse around once you begin to get doubts, no matter what faith you happen to be, evidence of God is absolutely everywhere you look. It’s challenging to miss.
I believe that there is nothing wiser than trusting in God, you will find such benefits which become visible once you truly trust. There are numerous instances of people who happen to be through terrible things throughout their lives, absolutely horrendous experiences. They may have already been travelling the wrong road at that time and not been blameless but somehow they survived and what was it in the end that helped those to survive it all, and turn their lives around and possess faith in themselves again? It had been that throughout the storm once they almost didn’t allow it to be, they found a branch to hold onto which saved them, that branch was god who was there to catch them.
It is an interesting simple fact that many Christians or believers were once criminals, rapists, murderers, thieves and so on. Some criminals once mocked others for being weak for believing in a thing that did not exist, as it could not really seen. Hardened criminals, who did anything that is the opposite of goodness and love and God, eventually put their trust in God. Which should surely make those skeptics on the market wonder. Why would somebody who was once so cool, confident and afraid of nothing turn to God? This I think is because when they had accomplished their life mission and were nearing their very own end, God stuck out the branch and saved them from all the horrible things that they had known, things which were causing their demise. These folks, the ones who had fallen in the wayside had first hand experience there definitely is a God which without him they will not have managed to make it. They became believers and set their total trust in God from then onwards, since they knew hardly anything else were as great or trustworthy. They had learned that hardly anything else was as fulfilling as knowing you needed someone searching for you personally constantly. Someone that you could trust totally and not be let down. God only has the best interests at heart, by trusting in God you can not fail since God has no ulterior motives to be there for you. God just wants everything that is useful for you when you uaxwat his unique creation. I provides you with an analogy – A baby has total trust in the mother while there is an extremely special bond between mother and child since she enjoyed a hand in creating the baby and the baby relies on its mother to thrive. This baby would have a hard time surviving if this was without trust within it.
