TRUSTING THROUGH

TRUSTING THROUGH

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us:” 
1 John 5:14 AKJV

We must confidently choose to believe that when we DO NOT GET something that we want, something that we have prayed for, that it is NOT what GOD wants for our lives. We must keep walking in faith that GOD has something that is by far better for us in the future!  Beauty can be found in unexpected places, even in the midst of our tribulations, our troubles. 

We are very quick to think that God is for us when we get what we want. We are just as quick to believe that He is against us or is “just not hearing me” if we do not get what we want. We can fall into the trap of praying for something and giving God a multiple choice list of solutions on how we think He should answer it.  “Well, God I am trusting you for this — but if not — then I am trusting you for that instead.” Then we are down cast in spirit or disappointed when things do not work out according to our dictation. His answer may be the very thing that we do no want to hear or to face. This practice of  “conditional faith” does not demonstrate true faith ! 

You may or may not receive that promotion that you feel you deserve. That relationship that you have been trusting Him to heal may or may not come to pass.  But know this,  God already knows the outcome and He has a plan for your future already in place.

Chronicles 22:16 AKJV (King David to  Solomon) tells us “Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. God had prepared the way for Solomon to build God’s house. Too, God has prepared our way to do His will. Arise therefore, and BE DOING, and the LORD be with thee.” 

Faith is active not passive. Waiting on God rarely means to sit and do nothing. Waiting on God, I believe, means keep doing the last thing He instructed you to do until He tells you to do something different. While waiting on God to complete the plans that He has begun, pray and place your trust in HIM, stand firmly, and get on with or “BE DOING” what you do know.  Active faith may mean physically and/or spiritually doing something. Pray and allow God to lead you.

Whatever situations you are working through, I would encourage you to first pray about it…whatever IT is for you. Pray through the questions, pray through the problems, pray through the answers, and pray through to the other side. Trust Him to do what is best at ALL times and not just when you are getting your way.

We must understand….we have to GET IT into the depths of our being, whatever God’s answer, it is the right answer, and it will be the best for us. Believe this even if it does not feel like it at the time.

He knows ALL things….His ways are higher than our ways ….His thoughts are greater than our thoughts.  Trust Him confidently and unconditionally and He will NEVER let you down.”

Faith is active…not passive. BE DOING, and the LORD be with thee.

GOD LOVES YOU !!!
  

SCRIPTURES….

Pray without ceasing. 
1 Thessalonians 5:17 AKJV

Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and BE DOING, and the LORD be with thee.”
Chronicles 22:16 AKJV

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us:
1 John 5:14 KJV

Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
Proverbs 25:19 AKJV

(8) For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD.
(9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 AKJV
  
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon .
Isaiah 55:7 AKJV
  
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.  
Psalm 118:8 AKJV
  
For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.  
Proverbs 3:26 AKJV
  
In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and His children shall have a place of refuge.
Proverbs 14:26 AKJV
  
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
Hebrews 3:14 AKJV

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
Hebrews 10:35 AKJV

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
    you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me
    know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I
    look forward to your new updates.

    the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome
    to tell the reality nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or
    outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against
    content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a
    blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning
    this.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
