2 Corinthians 1:8-10
Job 13:15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him: but I will maintain mine own ways before Him.
Learn to trust the Lord completely and abandon yourself totally to His will. Even though it may appear by our limited understanding as if we are being ill-treated by God, we should not be discouraged by our poor analysis of the situation; but rather, surrender totally to God in trust.
Whether God is angry with you or not, trust Him. Whatever is happening to you in this life, be determined that your trust will remain in the Lord. Always remember that when you became born again, you signed a contract of total trust in Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.
Learn to be like the child who after the mother has beaten him seriously and he is crying will still cling to the mother practically saying, “Though you have beaten me severely, you are still my mother. I will not leave you.” The child will be crying and holding the waist of the mother and following her all around. This is what the Lord expects of all His children.
Let God know of your trust in Him. Declare unto Him, “Lord, I trust in you. I believe in you.” Time of adversities, pains and other challenges of life will come as a flood and mighty wind against you; but tell yourself that you have covenanted with God to trust Him in all situations and circumstances of life. Declare that you are a child of trust and you are trust implanted in the living God.
Move forward and announce to the world. Let Satan and his demons know that as long as you live in the world, you have purposed to trust in the Lord. Your determination to trust completely in God is a personal choice. Others may not do so, but you should make up your mind to do so.
Others may run between two opinions on this matter, but as for you, let your mind be totally made up. You have no other choice than to trust in the living God. Let your family members, your friends and colleagues know about your choice. Do not only declare it, also demonstrate your choice for all to see.
Christianity is a practical thing. In all circumstances of your life, demonstrate your choice to trust in the Lord. Show everyone that you are totally immersed in the will of God. Let it be clearly seen in your daily life.
Thought for the day:
Tell God that you have signed a contract of total trust in Him
Song for the day:
He has promised He will never fail
Bible reading for the day:
Ruth 1-4; Luke 11:29-54
