Six Reasons Why You Should Trust God

1.       He knows you by name:

Isaiah 43:1 “But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”

2.       He will fight for you”

          Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

3.       He thinks about you:

Psalm 139:17 “How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!”

4.       He has plans for you:

Jeremiah 29:11  “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

5.       He is your refuge:

Psalm 62:6-8 “Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”

6.       He is always with you:

Matthew 28:20 “and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

They Were People Too!

They Were People Too!

An unusual thing about the Bible.  It describes the failures along with the victories of its heroes:

  • Abraham lied
  • Moses said he was incapable
  • David committed adultery

The Bible isn’t a book about heroes. It’s a book about flawed people that God used to do amazing things.

God responded to Elijah’s fear with a clear message, but also with patience. 

We are all mixtures of success and failures, and our failures can come at times when things are going well.

It’s good that God is patient with us, but hopefully we are making some progress toward more faith in God.

Have a blessed day!
