” I float through life like a leaf on a river, because I put my trust in God”
To every person God is different. For some people there is no God since they do not believe. However for believers there definitely is a God and that God has a different meaning to every single individual. There are plenty of religions out there but the one focal point of all these religions is God and even more importantly believing and trusting in God. To trust in God is a fulfilling thing for believers since they have faith in God so they know their trust is well placed. You cannot trust in something you do not have faith in, so in order to trust you need to be able to believe first. Many people out there remain searching for God. Others consider themselves Christians but they aren’t fully convinced that God exists. Now one must wonder what could possibly come from putting your trust in something you do not firmly believe in – nothing. (Hebrews 11:6 NIV) And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who concerns him must feel that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
It often happens that one comes to a point inside their lives where one has experienced lots of different things, some good some bad, and through this experience one comes to actually know one’s self and recognize that through knowing ones self one actually comes to know God. For many this method doesn’t take as long, having said that i feel that God has a purpose for many of us taking longer to locate him than the others, almost like a mission that we need to complete before we are equipped enough to know God.
(John 15:5-6 NIV) “I am just the vine; you happen to be branches. In case a man remains in me and that i in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone fails to remain in me, he or she is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are found, thrown to the fire and burned
Once we reach the point where we fully Trust God In All Circumstances we can give over our full trust to him and have faith in him to lead us with the path in our life, at the same time trusting that whatever happens does so for a greater purpose than we understand as the reigns will be in Gods hands. Through giving our trust to God fully we can be at peace to make peace with a lot of current and previous conflicts inside our lives, because we have that great trust in God we instantly become relieved of they constant burdens we felt all the time when we were seeking to handle and control everything ourselves. It is far from feasible for any individual to remain charge of everything all the time that is what God will there be for to ease our burdens when we would just be able to know him and let him be there for us.
“Trust within the Lord, and do good; Dwell inside the land, and feast upon His faithfulness. Delight yourself also within the Lord, And He shall supply you with the desires of the heart. Commit the right path for the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, As well as your justice since the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Usually do not fret as a result of him who prospers in his way, Due to the man who brings wicked schemes to pass through. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Tend not to fret — it only causes harm” (Psalm 37:3-8).
We are so quick to judge other different religions to our own own; instead this energy and time might be spent getting our own bond with God to cultivate. We often know very little, to nothing about other religions yet we think we can judge and often hate them. This may not be what god is centered on, but every religion we criticize are in their own way are worshipping God and putting their trust in God and letting him lighten their burden. We need to too spend our time by doing this rather than being judgmental of others which only serves to help make our very own lives more petty and miserable. We need to instead spend more time considering ourselves and seeking to God believing in and trusting God to assist carry our burdens and teaching us to love others while we love ourselves. We frequently don’t realize exactly how much easier and happier our way of life may be if we were to just trust in God.
We nowadays came to depend on and trust in numerous things, which we have now visit do without even thinking. We receive within our car and trust it to take us to where we would like to go. We get into elevators and trust that they may take us where we need to do without any problems, the same thing goes for airplanes, trains, boats, buses and so on…
Sometimes we need to undergo a surgical procedure, during which we might die, yet we trust the doctor to use on us so we hope to find the best. Now since we can so easily put our trust in all these trivial everyday things, why is it that we have now this kind of hard time believing in God and giving him our trust? God is greater and more powerful and all sorts of knowing than other things we put our trust in. Just check around when you start to get doubts, no matter what faith you happen to be, the evidence of God is absolutely everywhere you gaze. It’s difficult to miss.
I think there is certainly not wiser than trusting in God, you can find such benefits which become visible once you truly trust. There are numerous instances of individuals who have been through terrible things throughout their lives, absolutely horrendous experiences. They may have already been travelling a bad road during the time and never been blameless but somehow they survived and what was it in the end that helped those to survive everything, and turn their lives around and have faith in themselves again? It absolutely was that through the storm when they almost didn’t allow it to be, they found a branch to hold onto which saved them, that branch was god who was there to catch them.
It is an interesting simple fact that many Christians or believers were once criminals, rapists, murderers, thieves and so on. Some criminals once mocked others as being weak for believing in something which did not exist, since it could not be seen. Hardened criminals, who did anything that goes against goodness and love and God, eventually place their trust in God. That should surely make those skeptics on the market wonder. Why would someone who was once so cool, confident and scared of nothing consider God? This I believe is because once they had accomplished their life mission and were nearing their very own end, God stuck out the branch and saved them coming from all the horrible things they had known, things that were causing their demise. These people, the ones who had fallen at the wayside had first hand experience there definitely is really a God which without him they would not have managed to make it. They became believers and set their total trust in God from then onwards, because they knew hardly anything else were as great or trustworthy. That they had learned that little else was as fulfilling as knowing you needed someone searching to suit your needs at all times. Someone who you could trust totally and do not be let down. God only has your very best interests at heart, by trusting in God you can not go wrong since God has no ulterior motives as being there for you personally. God just wants all that is good for you as you uaxwat his unique creation. I will give you an analogy – An infant has total trust in the mother because there is an extremely special bond between mother and child since she experienced a hand in creating the child and also the baby relies on its mother to live. This baby would have a hard time surviving if this did not have trust inside it.
