John 15: 1-5
Hebrew 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
Everyone that comes to God must believe that God is and able to handle his matter. Coming to God with this understanding requires that you cast all your burdens upon Him, for He cares for you. It is good that a man should both hope and wait patiently upon the Lord.
This life of trust in God is a profitable exercise. Trust pleases the Lord and when the way of man pleases the Lord, He makes His enemy to be at peace with him. If you want the peace of God in every matter, believe Him and trust in Him continually. This will draw the presence and power of God to your life.
Trust will bring the riches of heaven down to shower upon you and envelope you with grace. That grace will cover you from head to toe when you trust in the Lord. Your trust moves God to work for you, in you and through you. Total trust is the only way the just shall live successfully in this life. We have searched and discovered that there is no alternative to trusting in the Lord.
Every other way ends up in the ditch or desert. The only way that penetrates and continues through eternity is the way of trust.
If the just man must live in this life and find food to eat, he must totally trust in the Lord His God. If the just man desires to survive the attacks of this life, he must not relent in trusting the Lord. If the just man must make progress, triumph and advance in this life, he has zero alternatives to trust in the Lord, for in God we live, move and have our being.
Why are we talking about trust in the Lord? It is because without Jesus we cannot make any headway. Without Jesus we cannot perform or make tangible advancements. Our ministry and services will not prosper without Him.
Are you looking and searching for an alternative to Jesus? You cannot find that anywhere in the world.
Return to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith, else your damnation in life and eternity are unavoidable. Look away from the mountain before you and focus on Jesus alone to help you surmount it.
Thought for the day:
Surrender your problem to God in trust
Song for the day:
Not by power, not by might
Bible reading for the day:
Joshua 16-18; Luke 5:1-16
