Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding
Faith means you obey when you don't understand. Faith is a risk. You must risk your whole being to trust God.God has not given you a spirit fear He has given you the Spirit of Power and Sound mind.
The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
God doesn't start anything that he doesn't finish.
Life is not predictable. There are ups and downs along the way.when times are good it can feel easy. But when times feel difficult, it is more important to trust God. God's unchanging character can give us a firm foundation when things feel unsteady and uncertain.
"When it comes to trusting God, that means believing in his reliability, His word, His ability, and His strength. The Bible says that God cannot lie. That He always keeps His promises. That He loves you and has good in store for you. Trusting in him means believing what He says about is true." According to Cru.org
"We have to learn to trust God when we do not understand what is happening in our lives, and we need to become comfortable with unanswered questions. You and I may never have every answer we want when we want it, so we need to relax and get comfortable knowing and trusting God, the One who does know. Without trusting, it is impossible to enjoy today and be ready to face tomorrow with expectancy." These is according to Joyce Meyer
"We have to believe His character is essentially good that God is good, that God does good even in bad situations. God is God and we are not. God is sovereign. The ability to deal with disappointment, is when perhaps He didn't answer or the outcome you were expecting, was the one you were expecting. It is a huge maturity as a believer. Alot of people have walked away from there faith or lost there faith in God because God didn't do something that they expected Him to do.
Sometimes it is good to walk through the "Shadow of the Valley of death", I want to be delivered from it, I want to be taken around it and I'd rather go back from it, but there is some kind of fruitfulness and sanctification that comes when you go through it and pruning that comes from going through it. In Hebrew it says a good father corrects, a good father disciplines.
That doesn't mean it's a bad thing, but none of us wants to be on a receiving end of disappointments. Your dad(God) not doing what you thought and even if you know in your mind he's got a bigger perspective. What I think that comes down to, is Essential Trust. Can I trust that my God is good, even when I don't understand what is happening?" These is according to Christine Caine.
Trusting God brings you to a whole new level in Christianity and relationship in Him. It means to never rely on your own will or understanding the Bible is very clear on that. It is crucial to not let your mind mess with your Spirit when you trust God, in EVERYTHING.
Recently I was trusting God in a breakthrough and I prayed on my knees everyday without ceasing. I gave thanks in advance for the breakthrough even when I wasn't sure when God will deliver, I still walked by faith and trusting Him wholeheartedly, I tell you it wasn't easy cause I could here my thoughts asking alot of what If's and I'll worry or be anxious about the situation, but I never faltered in my faith in God, stand your ground with God. During those moments I prayed and worshipped Him. Eventually after waiting for almost 2 months, on God, He finally delivered and I gave thanks to the Lord.
God can overturn a difficult situations into a positive situation any moment in His Will.
Everytime you feel His taking long to respond to your prayers, go in a quiet place, calm your mind and heart and be in Spirit with His presence. Talk to Him, like a child talks with her/his mom/dad or guardian and if your an orphan don't worry about it, God is still and will be a Parent to you. He likes it when you have a conversation with Him. Listen to worship songs or read the word, It was written for us to meditate on it. At these point during your prayers with God, don't let the devil deceive you from God, he'll try everything to discourage you from trusting God or he may even distract you from your prayers.
