Trusting is possible.
In my early childhood I remember I trusted the Lord with all my needs. As a child I would ask God to reunite my parents, so they would remain together and not be divorced anymore. I remember that was a daily petition. Always asking my mother when I would get to see them together. She would never answer, or she would never say that it was not possible either. So being such a young child I made up in my mind the idea that one day they would be together again. So, I lived in that fantasy for a couple of years. One day, my father came to get me for a weekend and I found out he had moved and married a very beautiful, tall, blonde woman. I was so hurt and confused at the same time. I was beginning to understand that my dream to have my parents together was over. So, I felt that the two of the most important people in my life had decided to omit the truth. (I am sure they only thought that if they did not talk about it they would avoid any hurt to my heart.) They never explain the divorce was final and that they would never be together again. This is one of the many things that happened throughout my childhood that made trusting people close to impossible. It’s incredible how today I can see how our hearts are linked to the way we will think and feel throughout our lives. God can change and heal us of the way we have been taught to guard our hearts to the point of living emotionally alienated. Proverbs 4: 23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
The ability to trust God or people is a process full of challenges. Working daily on our ability to trust the Lord with everything is a challenge. The enemy has been throughout our lives working to achieve that we do not believe in anything or anyone. He has been busy creating strongholds in our minds. This has been a powerful bible verse that I read daily and has been setting me free: 2 Corinthians 10: 3-6 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” That same enemy also wants us to hate one another. Why? Well the Lord says that the most important thing to follow Him is to love one another. The enemy’s mission in our lives is to convince people to go against God and specially to hate each other. After many traumatic experiences in my life I was one who said that God was a waist of our time. I did believe this after feeling disappointed by many people I loved.
To be a believer is the ability to heal our hearts, forgive others, and live for God. We have to above all else love Him and the people around us with a sincere heart. I can see that everything I need has been provided for. Forgiveness, understanding, and knowledge of the truth has set me free (John 8:32). When I have a worry for a family member I only need to move in prayer using Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”and most of the time, I BELIEVE that the Lord will cover that need. Sometimes I have to ask God to help me in my unbelief. Faith is a moment to moment battle. Even the disciples that saw all the mighty wonders Jesus performed constantly worked with their unbelief. It’s our humanity to question all wonderful things that we receive from God above. We just have to learn daily to work to live in the rest of God because is there that you will always see the hand of God in everything. This means that we have to work on our trusting and loving the Lord above all else. I can see how faithful Abba is in everything right now. He has been teaching me to trust Him above all else because as it says in Matthew 6:8 “… for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” This is an achievement on learning to trust that God has a better plan than mine. God gives us everything we need and makes sure it aligns perfectly with the life He has design for us. God wants us living full of love and courage, so we can share that love and courage daily with others.
Please, say this prayer with me today:
Jesus thank you for coming into my heart and taking away all unbelief.
Jesus thank you for transforming my mind and aligning it with the blessings you have for me.
Thank you, Lord, for opening my spiritual eyes like you did with Elijah’s servant.
Thank you for letting me see your angel armies.
Thank you Jesus for letting me know that I am loved, by speaking truth to my heart.
God bless you with a victorious day.
Jesus loves you and so do I.
