3 Ways of Trusting in God All Times
God invites you to cast all your cares upon Him. Trust Him with all your heart and diligently seek His strength and power to deliver you from all your problems and to prosper you in everything you do. God’s ultimate plan for your lives, are not pain or agony. He wants His children to live in liberty, freed from the shackles of darkness. But trust is not an easy thing to depend upon God but it is one of the most important parts of our relationship with God. When times are tough and things are not going in our favour, that time when we find it the most difficult to trust God. We doubt that God is going to come through for us, we lack faith in His promises, and we worry ourselves with endless thoughts about our future.
But it is the exact opposite of how God wants you to react to the difficult circumstances in your lives. He wants you to trust Him when you are having doubts and are unsure about what to do. He wants you to believe in His promises when you think that things are going to get worse. So question is this, how can you trust God when you feel like trusting God is impossible?
Firstly, you must know What is Trust? Trust may define as – The belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, or effective. You all know that God is the full embodiment of this definition and so much more. Then why is it so hard for you to trust Him?
According to my own views, it is because your environmental society has programmed you to not trust anyone or anything. Every one know that the better someone or something sounds, the more likely you are to find fault with them due to your disbelief.
Many times, this becomes second-nature to you and you don’t even know that you are doing it. It becomes embedded in your subconscious. But that is not the case with God. God is never too good to be true. In fact, God wants to surprise you in a BIG way. God said – Call Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.
You might be surprised to learn that trust is like a muscle that you have. The more that you exercise it, the more that it grows and is strengthened. So how can you strengthen your trust muscle?
Here are 3 ways to exercises:
1. Surrender yourself and all of your troubles to God.
When you realize that there’s supernatural strength available to you from above, then your perspective on life will change. You can move from worry to worship by realizing that God is in control of every circumstance in your life. Let Him be the Master of you and of everything in your life. Once you stop trying to do things in your own strength, God will take over and lift you to new heights.
2. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Your thoughts are extremely powerful and they can affect things like your mood, your attitude, and yes, even your actions. So when you find yourself thinking negative thoughts that are bringing you down, start thinking about positive scriptures that will lift you up.
3. Ask God to give you patience. It’s a fact that God will come through for you at just the right moment. He’ll never fail you. You’ll need to stay in prayer during this time because your faith will be tested. During your trial, ask God to give you patience and to help you trust that He knows what’s best for you. Remember, God is never a second late, He always shows up on time.
